There are some key elements to a good iPad case.

proporta ipad2 leather case open flatIt needs to cover the front back and corners of your iPad. It sounds obvious but many don’t – they leave corners exposed, or provide inadequate screen protection.

It needs to be a quality case. iPad’s cost a lot of money – even the cheapest model will have set you back around £400 and for that kind of money I don’t want a cheap plastic case. I want something of quality, real leather, with the sense that it will last. And that’s what you get with the Proporta ‘Aluminium Lined Leather Case for the Apple iPad 2’.

Quality

It’s a luxury feeling product with quality leather and is aluminium lined for lightweight but secure protection for your iPad. It has cut-outs for all the ports and cameras of the iPad2 and provides a really snug and secure fit.

Stand

Good iPad cases function as a stand for your iPad – after all people watch a lot of videos on these things, or browse the web or read a book, and having the ability for the iPad to stand by itself is crucial. The Proporta leather case can be flipped round and provides to padded ‘bars’ allowing for the iPad to be stood at 2 different angles.

General

The case uses a magnetic ‘snap’ close tab that hold the front closed, the magnet snaps in place firmly, but isn’t too strong that it becomes hard to open. The case is available in black or brown leather, either of which look superb, and when carried give the appearance of a high quality journal.

The case is available from the Proporta website and costs £59.99 with free shipping. While it isn’t the cheapest case you can get for your iPad believe me when I say the quality of this one is worth every penny. Plus it comes with a Proporta lifetime warranty and ‘no argument’ refund policy both of which give you great peace of mind when purchasing.
