The best iPad mini cases can be extremely cost-effective, and super easy to find if you know what to look for. Should you drop or damage your device, having a more rugged case can save you an awful lot of money in the long-term, instead of having to repair or replace your expensive Apple product. 

Even if you're not particularly clumsy, having a stylish case with minimal drop protection and other cool features and stand functions will undoubtedly still provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your iPad mini is protected, making the purchase more than worth it. It's better to be safe than sorry and out of pocket.
