    I'm going to list what i'm looking for. If you know of any that do all this please let me know. I've watch a ton of review vids and can't find one.

    I want it to be folio style. I want it to have some sort of flap or snap or magnet to keep it closed. I want it to have a few pockets to store things in and I want it to act as a stand.

    Any suggestions?

    I would say to go with the Marware Eco-View. Only thing i think its missing is pockets. But I think adding pockets would make the folio style cases a little to bulky.

    Ditto. Many cases have three of your four requirements. I don't know of any that has pockets too, other than business card slots.

    About the Marware. In a youtube review a guy says "if you flip it over and shake it a little, your ipad will fall out"

    They have a fix for that: Don't flip it over and shake it.

    This one [ iPad Case ] that I just got has 3 small pockets inside, snaps shut, and has a back stand. Probably you may want bigger pockets and if so, take a look at this one [ Laptop Sleeves | TBS044US | by Targus ]

    I got mine on sale [the Targus] from Staples at $14.
    PS. the iPad Passport style case fits inside the Targus one from Staples. Dual protection.

    Happy hunting.

    Since were giving our wishlist. I would like to see a case that comes with a included stylus and a place to hold it.

    I have had a good cheap case I purchased from Amazon and its only missing the holder for a stylus. If I were not lazy I would just get one and velcro it.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I think i'm going to go with the Griffin Passport.
    It has a few downsides (the straps cover some things and it doesn't act as a stand very well) but for me I think it'll do.

    You have to shake it REAL hard. I love mine and never take the iPad out anymore.

    Great, things I want :

    colorful ( my favourite is red / purple )
    slim ( easy to carry , I prefer a case instead of a bag )
    casual ( with some stylish design would be great , at least people would look at it when I take it out from my bag :eek: )

    Hi Emily, you may like this case, I saw it on facebook:

    For me, I'm still looking for my dream case which is made of shock absorbing material, folio style, and comes with hand strap and pockets.

    Are you looking for a folio case as well? If not, then how about the SwitchEasy Nude.

    TUAW had an article about some colourful felt cases that may do what you're after. Can't remember what they were called but looked ok
