    Yes - the on-screen keyboard is too difficult for touch typing.

    Oh - yes - and, when I looked, 100% of Members used keyboards - a poll sample of exactly 1 (me)...

    So that's settled that...

    Yeah, when it comes to typing more than a few words, you betcha that I'm grabbing the keyboard! I still have to look at the screen and, essentially, hunt and peck with the iPad one. Whereas, with a Bluetooth keyboard I can breeze along with my touch-typing.

    Bluetooth keyboard FTW!

    No. The longest things I type on iPad are emails. I considered a keyboard, but figured I'd end up not using it, because I don't want to tote around more weight.

    For serious typing, I have netbooks and laptops, and use a PC for work.

    I need help in choosing my second keyboard

    I got my first case/keyboard through Amazon that's anything but easy to get around on. I'm needing help in figuring out which brand to go with next. I'm right now drawn to the ClamCase and the Crux but I can't figure out which one would work better. Anyone out there who can explain why one is better than the other would be appreciated from the bottom of my heart.

    While the on screen keyboard works, it's very limiting for those of us who really do touch type like there's no tomorrow hence I want the extra keyboard I can type faster on. We need a keyboard we can really plunk out everything on. There's a new Crux that's coming out this fall that even includes a glide pad on the bottom plus additional batteries built in so we have even longer run times. At $250 plus S & H it's not cheap, but it really can make this IPad a duel machine. Then there's the normal Crux and the ClamCase that offer the keyboard but no mouse option that I still miss. I need help - in fact that's why I joined this really fun group that's becoming nearly as addictive as the IPad II.

    I have the Apple wireless k/b and IMO it is an absolute dream: full size, responsive, positive. I love it. With batteries it weighs 11 ounces, and feels much lighter than that. I highly recommend it.
