While everyone else is drooling over the latest Apple delight-the iPad Mini-you, you trendy son-of-a-gun, are already a proud owner. Well, you hear it’s wonderful but you’re still scared to take it out of the box. So you just spent at least $500 to not even use the iPad Mini because you’re afraid of scratches, dents and possibly breaking it in half. You thought buying the iPad Mini was expensive. Just wait until you have to fix it, especially if the incident is your own fault.
The answer for all iPad Mini owners, be they simply smart, cautious consumers or a full-blown klutzes leaving paths of destruction, is an iPad Mini case. We’ve compared the 3 best places to get an iPad Mini case to match your needs.
The first place most consumers will think to shop is the Apple Store, online or retail. iPad Mini cases start at $39.95 and go up to $59.95. The styles range from sock and book cover like to resembling trapper keepers and pencil cases. There’s a design to fit many personalities. One iPad Mini case even has a four leaf clover to show off Irish pride and maybe add extra luck keeping it safe. There’s also some sassy colors from purple to neon green.
While some of the iPad Mini cases look fairly classy, most of them scream (in the voice of Veruca Salt) “my rich mommy and daddy just bought me an iPad Mini and now I’m showing it off at Cheerleader practice.” See for yourself at Apple Online.
Perhaps you’re on a spending spree and want something unlike what anyone else will have to make your new leading gadget really stand out. Check out Etsy’s array of handmade iPad Mini Cases. Ranging in price from $65-108, they offer a few simple but mostly quirky designs. It will feel like Christmas each time you take out your iPad Mini from one of these cases. While no one else will look like you when you’re carrying your iPad Mini in Etsy, you do need to take it out to use it, which isn’t always practical.
Last, but our best pick, is Zagg’s full body invisibleSHIELD at $39.99. The previous two iPad Mini case options offer some style but no actual protection. Zagg gets right down to business without the sometimes gaudy bells and whistles. For extra reassurance, the Zagg iPad Mini case site has a video showing an iPad Mini protected by invisibleSHIELD’s full body coverage as keys scratch it, nails are dropped on it and it’s attacked by heavy duty tools. After all this, it looks like it is scratched up. But once the invisibleSHIELD is pulled off, the iPad Mini remains in perfect condition.
Now, one would probably have to buy a new iPad Mini case. However, this would be the same with any of the before mentioned cases. Except with those you’d need a new iPad Mini as well. This is why we’ve chosen Zagg’s invisibleSHIELD’s full body coverage as the best iPad Mini case currently on the market. It doesn’t distract from the already well designed iPad Mini and it offers superior protection.
So go ahead. Open the box and take out your iPad Mini. Get acquainted with it-its smooth and sleek design, its ability to meet all your needs and wildest fantasies. But, as they say, use protection and wrap your gadget in an iPad Mini Case. (The safest brand being Zagg.)
