This case really is near perfect.
Considering the mini is going even more places with me than my old iPad, finding a comfortable & enjoyable case is crucial. It is the tactile experience of the device that you're going to touch thousands of times. It had to:
* Be slim, not ruin the beautiful form factor.
* Provide a tactile improvement over the mini itself. Caseless, I handle an iPad like glass, with a cover I handle like a book. This is a world of difference in the day-to-day life with the ipad.
* Be luxurious. It shouldn't cheapen the aesthetic of an already elegant device.
* Cover both sides. It's about a sure-grip as well as protection.
* Provide a relatively low-level of protection. I'm easy on my phones & pads, so I felt I could forego shock protection that would bulk it up.
* Not be "fiddly". I don't want to unlatch, unclip, twist, snap, de-sleeve or anything other than naturally use the iPad.

This case does all that, expertly.
I've been handling my naked iPad like the freakishly expensive slab of high-tech, glass and metal that it is. As soon as I put this case on it, the mini feels like a well-worn companion that belongs with me. The leather feels great, and I know it will only improve as it wears in. The fit and finish is top-notch.

The bad:
[update] The stand is pretty stupid. The magnet needs to be much stronger. It's perfectly fine to prop and watch Netflix, but if you start tapping away on apps, the stand collapses. I like the 'slot' design of the first ipad frog-skin case better. I'm dropping my rating from 5 to 4 to reflect this. [/Update]
The magnet should be stronger. If you hold it upside down the flap wont hold. (How often will it matter tho?)
You have to really push the volume buttons.

Size: iPad MiniColor: Black
This case has a lot of great qualities. It is slim, it is fit perfectly, the leather is high quality and has a great feel and smell, it has the sleep/wake function, and it offers a landscape and typing stand. However there were a few deal breakers for me and they had to do with the stand functionality. The stand is not very firm or reliable. I like to stand my ipad mini in landscape mode while I lay in bed and the stand just isn't good enough to prop it up well on an uneven surface of a bed. Not only that, but the magnets are not strong enough to reliably hold the stand in place and when it does work, I find that it holds the ipad too vertical.

If you don't really need to use the case as a stand, I would say this is one of the sexiest cases you can get for your mini. Everything is perfectly aligned and a perfect fit. The case feels and looks extremely high quality despite not offering the most protection. If you're careful with your mini and don't need the stand functionality, then this might be the case for you. Like I said, there is a lot to like about this case but for me, there is enough not to like that it will not be what I use on my Mini Retina.

Color: Blue
This is a beautiful case, but it does not hold the ipad securely. I loved it when I first got it, but after one month of use, my ipad popped out of the case and fell on a stone floor, leaving me with a cracked screen. I didn't expect this case to protect the ipad against drops, but I don't think it unreasonable to expect it to hold the device securely within the case, so that at least if you drop it, you drop the case with the ipad. This case essentially launched my ipad into the air. In addition, after less than six months of use, the case fit even less securely and the color has become dingy from body oils on my hands. As much as I wanted this case to work, it just didn't, and after less than 6 months, I have replaced it with another case. The price tag on this case is out of proportion to the value provided. I would ever buy this case again, and I would NOT recommend it. I expected a lot better from Apple to offer a product that would work well to minimally protect the device it is designed to pair with,

Color: Brown
I received my Apple iPad Mini as a Christmas gift. It came with a foam type protective sleeve, which I thought wasn't good enough for such a wonderful device as this iPad mini. I went about searching online and in the store looking for a better type of cover case. I came across this Apple smart case for the iPad mini. When I talked to the salesman in the store and he explained to me how to put the iPad mini and it, I decided to purchase a black one because my iPad mini was black. But after giving it a little more thought, I decided to purchase a brown color one. I thought the combination with the black iPad and the he brown leather would make it look like a much richer looking combination. I was right, the color combination looks absolutely stunning.
As it is supposed to do, when you open up the case it turns on the iPad mini and when you're done and you close the case, it shuts the iPad mini off.
This case offers sufficient protection for the iPad without making it appear too bulky. This case is very slim and trim just like the iPad -- it's almost like a second skin on it.
So far I am very pleased that I made this purchase of this Apple smart case.
