I wanted a keyboard case, so I purchased the ZaggKeys, Profolio Plus keyboard case. I love it. If you are conscious about the kind of weight you pack around, then this won't be for you. If you don't need a keyboard most of the time, this won't be for you. I'm a teacher, and the iPad effectively stores all my teacher's guides in digital form, so instead of lugging those bad boys home every night I'm packing the iPad 4 with the case. It's still much less weight to carry than the manuals. Also, not leather and sturdy so it protects my iPad, when I toss it in my purse or backpack.
