I never thought I would end up in this predicament. I own an iPad (one year ago, I thought it was just an enlarged version of the iPhone and a complete waste of moolah) and I am toying with the idea of getting a decent case to house my new gadget (aren’t fancy gadget cases some kind of frivolous?).

So here I am, browsing websites after websites, looking for the ideal iPad case. And sure it does sound almost like Cinderella searching for her glass slippers.

Ostentatious (Above S$500)

These are such nice-to-have. Although the pragmatic side of me wonder about the lifespan of the covers given that the iPad product cycle is approximately one year?

Mid range (S$100-S$500)

I am tied between a folio and a zipper case. The folio seems more useful, but some folio cases might not have an opening for the camera in the iPad 2. The “leather clutch” style seems to be a fabulous idea where your iPad case could double up as a regular bag.

Affordable (Below S$100)

The affordables that I have selected would probably suit those who want to acquire something fancy, but not too pricy. Marc by Marc Jacobs has a stunning suite of tech accessories. You can even get matchy-matchy iPhone, iPad and laptop cases!
