If you're worried about friends, family, or co-workers breaking or even scuffing up your new iPad Mini, this heavy-duty acrylic security base is reminiscent of what Apple uses to protect its hardware in its stores. Made from clear acrylic that's over an inch thick at one end, the case can even be secured to a surface with an adhesive backing or tamper-proof screws. So there's little risk of theft too.
At two pounds it completely negates the reasons most people would buy an iPad Mini in the first place, namely it being light and compact. So consider this an $80 insurance policy more than anything.
