The iPad clicks nicely into the holder side of the case and it's fairly stable. The part of the case that lies flat is somewhat rigid and not wobbly. Definitely order after Jan 15th, when they plan to retool the model. Also, I've purchased a much more expensive holder and it wasn't at all better than this one. Hope this helps!
my ipad is flat while inside it doesnt wobble at all. Like I an open it and lay it on my desk flat with no problem. But like they say the rubberized strips are the worst. It like a knock-off material, and doesn't really keep the ipad up. But you get what you paid for. it still is a good case in my eyes.
