The Macally BOOKSTAND case was in the No.10 position of our Top 10 iPad Stand Cases until 20th June 2010, but it now out of our list because we found that the case got easily scratched and scuffed after heavy useage and is unlikely to be durable due to its relatively flimsy construction.

Macally BOOKSTAND Protective Case and Stand for iPad

This case has a lightweight, plastic construction and it is comfortable to hold due to the gray microfiber overlay on the exterior and interior of the case. The front and rear panels are fastenened together with a leather-like strap that inserts into a compatible leather-like holder.

The iPad device is secured into the rear panel of the case by rounded reinforcements on all four corners which allow the device to clip into place; when the case was turned upside down and shaken, the device (..thankfully) did not fall out. Also, this design avoids the iPad being framed in on the 4 sides of the screen. The aluminium edges of the iPad appeared a little exposed on all 3 edges of the case when it was closed.

Macally BOOKSTAND Protective Case and Stand for iPad - Flat

For hands-free viewing and on screen typing, this case is transformed into a stand by flipping back the front panel of the book style cover, folding it along the scored part and securing it in place by tucking the leatherette strap into the holder. Surprisingly, the Macally functions reasonably as a stand in the horizontal mode and is just about stable, contrary to what had been expected.

If you are contemplating carrying the iPad loosely in your rucksack, this is not the right case for you as the microfiber is likely to get stained easily and this case offers minimal protection for your iPad under such rough conditions as it has no padding. However, the Macally iPad case does a good job in protecting the device from scratches.

  1. \Well I was impressed with the MaCally iPad case, however I wanted to see what other iPad cases were out there so I headed to Amazon and Overstock. I did find a impressive assortment of other brands like Otterbox, Incase, Mivizu, Belkin, Speck. I even found some real trendy brands like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Donna Karan and even Issey Miyake. While the assortment is deep and wide, I was still looking for a clean, sophisticated design with an elegant appeal to simplism. After review all the brands, I settled for Mivizu. The have great customer reviews, the product has well design and meaningful layout that serves it’s us and purpose. I found an iPad case that delivered on all my requirements, including delivering a great value against some of the other competing brands. The case was a little too much for me. I do like, but I instead choose something a little more minimalist with clean contours and outlines. The biggest drawback with the MaCally case is price itself. Mivizu has an equally shell with EPI technology for half the price. here is what i ordered: Mivizu iPad Black Carbon Fiber Folio.
