    I personally love this case. It is stylish AND durable — as tested by my 8 month old. The Logitech Keyboard Folio ($99.99) and Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for iPad mini ($89.99) doubles as a case (covering both the front and the back), and adds a spacious keyboard with full size keys to the iPad and iPad mini. Oh, and it also has an amazing battery life — up to 3 months. Not too bad.
