I was looking for a Gauntlet case for my Macbook, but happened to come across this, Surely looks like a bargain, I haven't bought one so don't know if it will go through at this price.

So your basing your vote based on how the product performs rather than whether it's a good deal? Riiiiiiight, because that makes sense with a site named HOTUKDEALS.
good price

The case isn't worth £3 If it doesn't do its job.

I've seen these and they look like they will provide decent enough protection. Are we all sure this is genuine at this price? It is VERY cheap!

But you don't vote based off it's performance. You vote based on whether it's a good deal, £3 is a good deal for something that normally costs £20 - £30. And even if it isn't worth £3, it's £3 versus £20 - £30.

So if I usually sell a bag of turds for £10 but I sell you one for £5 that's a good deal?

​I'll take 2
just bought 2, im sure it has some degree of protection, as my current one has done a fine job of protecting my ipad. further more i look after my stuff which is why it lasts. no case will protect it 100% if you are rough with a fragile item.
naff colour but good value!
Yes, I have just bought one having read some very reasonable reviews and watched a good youtube review.
Whether it would have been worth anything like the £50 odd RRP I have no idea, but at this price it is a steal.
I have been using the Apple original case since buying the iPad Air.
That cost a lot! It has now suffered from the heat and humidity of my travels though, coming apart at the seams, and I wouldn't pay that much again.
Will this fit an iPad Air 2? See in the questions someone asked and the reply was there is an Air 2 version of the case. However are there any significant differences between both Air models?

Oh dear lol. Thanks bud.
sparxuk, recently got the Gauntlet 2.0 case for the 13" for £29.99 from Amazon, recommended.

15" version 1's were on eBay Argos clearance for same price I think, almost bought the bigger one till I found the right size at this price.
Cheers decoy, that's the one I've gone for, nice to hear you recommend it

Really? I have Thule cases for my 2 x MacBooks and my daughter has this for her iPad Air. EXCELLENT QUALITY products. Well made, reputable manufacturer and do their jobs perfectly.

Best if potential buyers read the reviews on Thule products and see how well rated they are and ignore ill informed trolls.
Ordered, needed a new case for a while. Thanks
Ordered for my dad's ipad. Hot, cheapest I've seen
The original iPad case and copies have an edge that snaps on right around the sides of the iPad, I'm not sure how 'safe' this Thule case is going to be having the iPad secured at just two corners and the opposite side. Those plastic arms and corners don't look very sturdy. If one of those corner clips fails, there's nothing there to stop the iPad falling out of the case, at least with the 'other' types of case the iPad is secured all around the sides. Just my tuppence worth.

Thanks OP
These cases are brilliant. Had one on my ipad Air since I bought it last January and it's still in immaculate condition. Mine cost £20+ and was worth every penny even at that price. Super bargain.

According to the manufacturer spec it is a smart cover.

I didn't see any mention of 'smart' here thule.com/en/…883 though they do say "Magnetic cover automates wake/sleep functionality " so I guess that's it. Strangely, there are some comments on the amazon pages for different colour variations that say it's not a smart cover



Edited by: "mutav" 29th Dec 2015
Agreed, it was the reference to "Magnetic cover automates wake/sleep functionality " that I took to mean it is Smart.
Got mine today, can't fault it. Thanks
as above
Again, I received mine today.
Really good quality, in some ways better even than the original and with this offer all for just a very small fraction of the price of that one.
