Anyone know where I can buy a case for my iPad Generation 1, model A1219?

Shut up! I know it's old, but it still runs like a dream; no need to get a new one.

Amazon and eBay did everything but laugh at me for wanted a case for such an old model. None of the brick-and-mortar Apple stores have them.

The old case is falling apart. It's more duct tape than anything else...

1. I just googled it and Amazon has quite a few

Put this into your amazon search:

5. I've already bought and returned three cases Amazon insisted were for the Generation 1.

All of them too small.

2. How about Best Buy?

Also, make sure your security is up to date on the old iPad. Sometimes companies do not support older models and you can be vulnerable to identify theft.

6. First gen iPads only support up iOS 5.1.1.

3. There are a lot of generic cases... Take your measurements and check against 3rd party offerings

11. Wow, I had to finally give up my gen 2 model since it was soooo slow...

even after restoring it (plus the new software updates were no longer supported).

13. I've never seen iPad swag among the things they give out.

If I asked for one for an iPad as old as mine, I'm afraid they'd laugh themselves silly...

15. Now that is pretty cool!

I wonder how many glue sticks that took? With glitter color hot glue sticks you could make a really spiffy case!
