    Apple Case - Am I the only one?

    OK - so I got my iPad on the first day - and I now have 5 cases for it. I currently have:

    - Marware Ecoview
    - CIMO gel case
    - Belkin rubberized case
    - Dodocase
    - Apple standard case

    Each time I put a new case on my iPad I end up, within a few days, going back to the Apple case. I guess it's because of all of the negative press I've read about the case on this forum - I'm beginning to think I'm a defective person.

    I love the feel, look, flexibility and form factor of the Apple case. The ease moving from typing / landscape to standing up. How it makes the iPad feel very thin yet protected.

    Am I the only one with these thoughts? Perhaps it might make sense for Apple to take it's current case and manufacture with different materials and colors.
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    I must admit I'm not keen on the official case at all, it seems a little flimsy...

    I purchased my iPad on launch day and got the Apple case. I have not been impressed with any other case for the money. A skin for $49 by Belkin??? I think the Apple case is perfect and fairly priced. $39 gets you a nice, classy case that protects your iPad investment, looks like you are carrying a book/small folder with you, protects the screen when closed and the cover folds back to form an elevated platform, perfect for typing.

    I have done this in the past with various gadgets, but so far, I have resisted. There are about 10 or so different cases I want to buy - I am particularly a sucker for the fine leather, hand-crafted type.

    So far I just have a fairly cheap leather one I carry when I'm out. When I'm at work or home, I've been taking it out of the case and going naked.

    I've seen several other cases and the apple case is the best. Damn near impossible to get, but the best.

    I'm using a fake leather case from Incase. It is more bulky than i'd prefer, but the official apple case just didn't seem to be sturdy enough.

    The Apple case it ugly but the design is just right.
    The quirky lip is a good shock absorber for falling damage.
    It just works like the pad itself.....

    I agree the Apple case is very well designed. Yes, I wish it had the look and smell of leather, but I am not about to give up the Apple case for a fancy leather case that isn't as functional. I also like the fact the Apple case also looks like a black binder and few of the hoodlums around Atlanta know what I am actually carrying. There fore it could be said the Apple case also adds a measure of physical saftey to using the iPad.

    Yeah, a black binder with an apple logo.

    The issue of carrying an iPad is recognized even by Apple. A friend in NY at the Apple store was asked to put her new iPad in her purse after the Apple clerk removed it from the original box for safety.

    No one notices the Apple logo unless they are really close and examining what doesn't look all that interesting otherwise.
