Vaja's Libretto Limited Edition iPad 2 Case: Gorgeous!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 08:00 AM

This is my review of the Vaja Libretto Limited Edition leather cases for the iPad 2. The leather colour/style is "Mamut", and yes, it's as gorgeous as it looks. Ringing in at $190 USD, this is a premium-brand, luxury case. It's designed for someone who cares as much about how good the case looks as what it actually does. Thankfully, the Vaja case delivers good functionality along with the distinctive look. It lacks a second angle, but is otherwise similar to many other cases out there - it's basically the leather materials and hand-made approach that sets Vaja cases apart from the mass-manufactured cases you're probably used to.

The biggest thing to be aware of is that a case made of leather is going to wear and get "character" over time - nicks, scratches, tears, etc. It will look worn in a matter of months, so you don't buy a case like this expecting it to have the "looks the same as it always does" durability that a synthetic case does. As long as you're aware of that, I have no hesitation recommending this case - it's beautiful, unique-looking, and has the basic functionality you want in an iPad 2 case.

Marware CEO Hybrid iPad 2 Case Reviewed: It's a Keeper

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Accessories" @ 07:30 AM

This is my review of the Marware CEO Hybrid case for the iPad 2; it's a very versatile case that looks good, offers very comprehensive protection for the iPad 2, and is surprisingly affordable at $49.99 MSRP. The case covers 97% of the iPad, and the corners offer 5x more protection. I've been using this case for over a month now with my iPad 2; it's very damage resistant and still looks nearly brand new. I particularly like how it offers a second angle for typing/viewing - most cases do not. Read more...

Summary:

Haute couture is a French term reserved for clothing of the finest craftsmanship, most exclusive materials, and one-off custom-fitted design. In this world beads are often jewels, and threads are commonly made of real gold and silver. I can speak to this directly, as my wife studied at the Haute Couture House of Lesage, in Paris, France. I myself, have held a dress valued at nearly half a million dollars. But one question has since beseeched an answer: when draped in such a work of art, how does one dress their electronics to match? Noreve Saint-Tropez elegantly presents the answer in their line of Haute Couture cases for mobile devices. Read more...
