I almost sprung for it last night for $28 shipped but overthunk it. Decided to do it this morning and they were sold out (they had like 30-some late last night). Lots of other places have sold out or have dwindling supply, so it must be a pretty popular case.

So I found another shop selling it for $32 with free shipping. Sold.

Scratch that, Amazon has them for $29 free shipping. Canceled my other order. Just make sure you are getting model AHHB1P for the new iPad.

I got the same one. Thanks Psylichon for the mention. Going to be a nice case. BTW, just forwarded the Amazon link to my bro in law and they're now $31. I ordered it at $28.

Wow, and we just ordered this morning! Apparently, they noticed the demand as well. This thing is selling out everywhere.

Just a heads-up.... apparently the magnets don't line up with the new one, so the automatic sleep/wake feature doesn't work. Looks like Marware is going to have to do some swap-outs as this is definitely a touted feature.

I hope we get to keep our originals as backup. That would be pretty sweet.

I think I'm gonna return mine. It's very awkward to take pictures and video with this case. That and the strap to hold it open is cheap and flimsy and difficult to use. So close but just not quite for me.

First post on an iPad btw. :)

Mareware replied to me and said they are aware of the issue of the magnet misplacement causing he cover to not sleep/wake the iPad and that as soon as they rectify the situation, they will replace the case. As for the camera, I can't imagine a full case with a cover that folds back that wouldn't make taking a picture a little awkward.

They will replace it even if we got it from a third party vendor?

No wonder my Tuff Luv case isn't putting my new iPad to sleep. Thanks for the info.

I juz received the New Marware Ceo for 'new ipad' and my sleep feature/on.off works fine. :)

#Awesome case
So the iPad wakes/sleeps when you just open and shut the case without clipping it locked? Try shutting it and opening it without clipping the top. It won't sleep/wake it.
