Just an OK Case
When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to c When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to cover both sides of the iPad. At $79 I expected it to be a gorgeous leather and very functional, but it's not. It really does not feel like leather at all, and I just have not been able to prop the iPad up on a table with the case, the way that I expected I could.. I am thinking about returning it for a refund. …

Fits and feels wonderful. Stand takes some getting used to.

Great case; really adds to the iPad Air
I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from t I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air in it. I immediately decided to get it. I have prior experience with the Smart Case for a previous iPad (3) and didn't like it because the lip at the top seemed wide, clunky, and bulky. It could be that the new smaller form factor of the iPad Air allows it's Smart Case to be more pleasing. The top lip is narrow (like the bezel) and you hardly notice it. For my previous iPad I had both the Smart Case and a Smart Cover which I used in combination with a Belkin Snap Shield Secure. The Belkin case is a low profile shell (for the back) that was designed to accept the Smart Cover. I bring this up because it was my intention to use both setups and alternate them but since I disliked the older Smart Case so much I ended up never using it. For this new Smart Case, this is the only case I intend to get as I really like it. It's pricey as leather is the only choice, but if I had gotten the less expensive Smart Cover, I would have gotten an additional shell for the back so there would be extra cost there. I don't mind paying a little extra for a good solution like this. …

The one u'll consider to purchase..
Actually I wanted to give 3and half stars... I had it for about an year... Since it's getting old, it doesn't stands stable on the Actually I wanted to give 3and half stars... I had it for about an year... Since it's getting old, it doesn't stands stable on the desk...it'll often fall over to the back..maybe because there are too many rectangular bars folded inside, and couldn't support the weight of iPad ... Consider this point it might be a little pricy(personally, I think $40 a little above would be just right price to purchase) ... But other than is, it's a cool product. Easy to take off, made of leather, color won't fade crazy(at least mine stays in really good condition), the machine won't get super hot with long time using..and now the store got similar case with 3 bars attached, it might be more comfortable to use I guess...stands more stable...if you are not crazy about pretty design, why don't you just get a right one , and use it forever...^^ …

Poor fit and design
As others have said the cover doesn't close properly, but more importantly, the folding top does not reliably work as a stand and As others have said the cover doesn't close properly, but more importantly, the folding top does not reliably work as a stand and it falls over. I returned the case. Apple, with all it's design smarts, should do better than this - especially for what they are charging for it. …
