The classic look of leather is a great way to protect your ipad 2 with style. iPad 2 cases are a great way to minimize the chances of your ipad cracking if it suffers an unexpected drop. A case can also offer stability and visibility improvements (if you choose to use the various stand options that many cases have) There are a lot of cool case options for the ipad 2 from metallic looking enclosures that fit with the Apple mystique but if this is not your style choosing leather is a great alternative. An important factor to note is that any case is going to add bulk to your ipad 2 so there is a bit of a trade-off between bulk vs. physical security.
Factors when considering a case for your iPad 2
- How much bulk does the case add to your ipad?
- How snug does the case fit to protect all four corners?
- Quality of the leather the case is made of
- Personal choice as to attractiveness of design/style
