    Ladies,

    Have you guys seen a nice designer iPad mini case? Thinking of getting my wife a mini, planning to pair it with something nice. Michael Kors? Kate Spade? What have you gals seen that are pretty awesome?

    Been using an SGP/Spigen hardbook for about a month now.

    Not sure if mine is an isolated case but i found the plastic to be quite brittle with all four corners of the case developing cracks and chips. Puzzling for me considering i haven't subjected the case to anything rough outside of regular use.

    Replaced the Spigen Hardbook with a Tech21 Impact Snap Case with Cover. I like the premium feel of the case especially the soft leather cover. Sleep/Wake feature is there but isn't consistent.

    But more importantly, I am hoping it will be more durable than the Spigen.

    Ripped the crummy plastic backing off the spigen hardbook and stuck a cheapo case in it's place. It works.

    Re: iPad Mini Case Thread

    My new DIY iPad mini case. I've constantly been on the lookout for an inconspicuous case that will disguise my tablet, but couldn't find any cheap ones, so I decided to make my own.
    Cost:
    Journal case from National bookstore –P83 (50 percent off)
    Old cheap jelly case – P150
    Some old garter from an eye mask –free.
    I was even able to create a loop for my stylus. They say necessity is the mother of all inventions, I say it's frugality!

    Is the original Apple Smart Cover worth it? What I can't understand is why it's P2,300 here and only P1,600 equivalent, (HK$300 I think) in HK.

    I'm on the lookout myself, but I haven't seen any sofar. Such a bummer that the Kate Spade website doesn't accommodate Philippine orders so I have to make pabili pa.

    If I nay suggest, check out pencilshavingsstudio.com. I follow her on IG, and she makes awesome customized gadget cases. Beats a designer case if you want something really unique. :)
