Almost two years ago, I bought my very first Apple product….my MacBook Pro…..and I haven’t looked back since. As a person with little patience, the speed of the MacBook fits my personality and lifestyle. At a blogging conference last Summer, I spotted my first iPad. Another blogger took her iPad from her purse and furiously typed notes, tweeted and blogged all at the same time on this tiny tablet. While I love my MacBook Pro, carrying a smaller device seemed like heaven! Shortly after, I ended my iPad envy and purchased one at my local Apple store.
To protect my new baby, I bought a cushy, bulky case. I thought I needed the bulk to make sure it was safe. But what I soon realized was that I was defeating the whole purpose of getting the iPad by adding volume! When I was recently asked to check out a new iPad case from Case-Mate, I couldn’t wait to try something slimmer. About Case-Mate:
“Case-Mate is the leader in design of fashion-forward accessories for mobile technology and tablets. Since 2006, the company has helped consumers express their individual style with products that protect, adorn and enhance their mobile devices. Working with top designers from around the world and using cutting-edge materials, Case-Mate’s team of technology and design aficionados have created an extensive repertoire of mobile and tablet cases right for any style and every occasion.”
I selected the Venture Reptile iPad Stand Case in Hot Pink with Black Accents. When it arrived, I was immediately in love with the color. If you know me at all, you know that pink is one of my favorite colors! Inserting my iPad was easy and a strap that snaps closed keeps it safe and secure in the case. This case is so much thinner than my previous cover and it even fits inside my purse! Carrying my iPad is easy and very convenient now thanks to Case-Mate.
I took my iPad dressed in Case-Mate to my blog conference, Reviewer’s Retreat. I was able to easily take along my iPad to the sessions without fear of injury to the device. The cover flips open and doubles as a sturdy stand which makes the iPad very user friendly. I could not have been happier with my Case-Mate!
