Screen Shot 2012 07 26 at 11 12 13 AM

Sometimes simple is better. That’s the situation with this iPad case from Acase. It offers a slim, formfitting back for your new iPad and a leather case that wraps from the back to the front. In addition, it has a magnet for sleep and awake that does a good job keeping the cover closed when not being used. A tab on the back turns it into a stand and a loop is there as well if you use a stylus. It’s not the most exciting iPad case we’ve seen, but it does the job and does so in a nicely minimalistic manner.

Let’s take a look and then give it away.

From Acase:

As a form-fitted case folio for Apple iPad 3 (The New iPad), Acase(TM) combines hard PC shell and elegant cross grain PU leather together, creating a whole new design which match the i- product style – simplicity and elegant.

The ultra slim case will add only little bulk to your Apple iPad 3 (The New iPad) / iPad 2, and keep it slim as usual. To protect Apple iPad 3 (The New iPad) / iPad 2 and itself, the cross grain exterior provides special texture to prevent scratch and dust.

The display is covered gently by tender micro fiber lining. And the detailed cutout ensures all the functionalities accessible while you’re using the gadget. An elastic cord on the front cover allows you to put a pen or a stylus to the case.

If you want to watch videos or type emails, you can also fold the case into two standing positions. Every detail lined up for better protection, convenience, and sexiness.

So let’s take a look at this case on video and then tell you how you can purchase one or, perhaps even better, enter to win the review sample.

MSRP: $69.99

What I Like: Thin and light; Protective; Includes a built-in stand; Has sleep/wake functionality; Made from real leather

What Needs Improvement: doesn’t it feel as “refined” as some other cases but those are far more expensive; White will likely get dirty.
