With the massive popularity of smart phones and tablet computers, also comes a huge influx of tablet cases to choose from. For every gadget out there, there is a case to keep it covered and look cool at the same time. Like any accessory, even the cases you buy for practical reasons still tend to reflect the owner’s personal style.

It’s a great gift to get any gadget-lover without breaking the bank or taking a trip to the Apple store. With hundreds of cases out there to choose from, how does one even narrow down the right one for their recipient. Well, that’s where we Gurus come in handy! We’ve sorted through them all to find our favorite case picks for every type of person (well maybe not EVERY, we’re only human). So whether you’re shopping for the proud parent, or the sleek professional, we’ve got a case for them.

Stay tuned for the rest of this three part series.
