Essential Guide to iPad cases
You've got the hottest toy, a new iPad. Now you need a case to protect its fragile beauty. Let me help you choose the perfect one.
There are three basic types of cases.
A folio protects the iPad and lets you handle it somewhat like a book.
What to look for: Make sure the case covers and protects all edges of the iPad. Decide whether you want a pocket (for a cleaning cloth or paper) and whether you need a holder for your stylus. Some folios are specially designed to function as stands; that might not be as important as it sounds since any folio can be propped up as a stand. Here are some examples along with pros and cons.

The Yoobao case is like a quality leather version of the much-maligned official Apple case. There's a flap that holds the iPad securely, and the case functions as a stand. It's got a nice, sturdy feel and protects all edges of the iPad. The leather is thick--which is good, but it also makes it difficult to clip a stylus to the case. Actually, I've found it impossible. Note that magnets keep the folio closed--some people don't like magnets around their electronics. It's available in black and brown with white stitching.
