Leafbook Ultra Slim Folding Cover Case

These Leafbook cases are both the most stylish cases on this list and also the cheapest so they might be worth checking out. With styles priced as low as $7, that's a bargain for something this stylish.

I've highlighted the "composition book" cover ($11) which I found to be the most clever option available, but there are six styles to choose from and they all look pretty decent. Each case is designed with a PU leather exterior and a microfiber interior. Designed to be ultra-slim and lightweight, the hard back design will keep your tablet safe from drops — which is your main reason for buying a case, right?

Leafbook stands behind its products and offers a 12-month warranty on its products, so you can buy with confidence.
