I just spent some time online looking at Oberon cases. Boy, those are beautiful! Heavy and expensive, but beautiful. I like that you can securely close the case with that button and cord. Since my Paperwhite is going to spend time riding around in my purse, I want to make sure it does not accidentally open, exposing the screen to things that may scratch it. I don't think I like so much that the Paperwhite would be held down by those elastic bands on the corners.
That said, I was looking again at Amazon's own case for the Paperwhite. I see that it closes with the magnetic clasp. Other less expensive cases close by magnets, but I don't think they actually "clasp." Does the Amazon case actually click shut with that magnetic clasp so it won't accidentally open in my purse like I am thinking other types may?
Thanks for any enlightenment.
