    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.
