The Targus Slim New iPad case has been on the market for awhile, well atleast since the third generation iPads release that is. Based on many internet reviews the case sure does have its positives and negatives. The design of the case is said to be slim, feeling great in the hand. The case also works as a stand, forming multiple types of stand positions, just like the smart cover. All buttons and ports are accessible, nothing is covering them up. The screen is even well protected.
“The case leaves exposed iPad real estate. The top and bottom bezel falls a tad higher than the case, so if the iPad is rested face down (front cover open), the iPad screen will come in contact with the surface. This means that if I were to accidentally drop the iPad, I cannot count on the case to protect it. Defeats the purpose of having a case. The side edges are perfect but if I close the case, top/bottom bezel is very visible, i.e. exposed. I’m not a fan of the Apple logo part being visible, it just leaves that part of the iPad exposed, but this is just a personal preference.” – via Amazon

With detailed accent stitching, an easy-to-clean twill exterior, and a soft-lined interior, the Slim Case boasts premium materials that are functional and attractive. The Slim Case was built with a custom fit cradle to keep your iPad nice and snug while in use and in transit. In addition to shielding your iPad from scratches and dust, this case also features clever stylus storage without adding any bulk while the magnetic on/off feature helps conserve battery life by putting your iPad to sleep while the case is closed – there’s no need to press any buttons!
Oh, and did we mention that the case comes in Black,Red,White,Gray, and Indigo?
Should You Purchase:
The Targus Slim model is your typical folio case. The appearance of the case is very nice, the stitching is perfect, and is what makes the case ‘unique’. And for the stylus users, you cannot pass up a stylus holder attached to your case. Overall though it comes down to whether you enjoy the design of the case. The only flaw once again is the protection, if you drop the iPad with the front covering open, your iPad won’t receive maximum protection.
You can purchase the Targus Slim on Amazon from $37, depending on your color.
