    Risetto for my ipad - Size question

    All,
    Recently got a new ipad2 which I am in love with. Because of my job (active-duty Army), I purchased a gumdropcase for the extra protection while out in the field and traveling. It is tough as nails but also adds considerable bulk to my ipad2.

    The width of the ipad with the case comes in at about 194mm. I am looking to get a Risetto and am unsure to get the one made for the ipad 2 (width of 193mms) or the one for the 11" Macbook Air (width of 208mm).

    Which Risetto do you think I should get to hold my ipad with the gumdrop case? The one designed for the ipad2 with a really tight fit or the one for the 11" Macbook air?? Thanks all!

    Hey Lone Piper,

    Can you give me the other two exact dimensions of your iPad in the case?

        Darcy,
        Just measured and I'm looking at a length of 10", a width of 7 3/4" and about .75" thickness. Hope that helps!

          Darcy,
          The more I look at the measurements, I think my Ipad and case may be just a bit to wide for the Ipad Ristretto. Not sure how much "wiggle room" there is. If so, it looks like the 11" Macbook Air Risetto should work. What do you think?

            We think your iPad in the case will fit fine (there's just enough wiggle room) in the Ristretto for iPad, so we'd recommend going with that over the 11" Air Ristretto.

                      Darcy et al,
                      The Risetto arrived yesterday and it is PERFECT Ipad2 with the Drop Series case from Gum Drop cases fits perfectly! Just enough wiggle room to get it in and out of the Ipad area with ease. Thanks SOOO much for the help and super fast shipping! Taking it to Iraq in about three weeks for a short trip so I will try and grab some pics for you all!
