    Question This is what I am looking for - can you help?

    Looking for a case that has the following:

    - able to watch / use both in portrait and landscape &
    - casing so that the screen is protected
    - ability to type ala this
    - nice form factor. something that looks professional for meetings
    - ideally around (or less than) $50

    like what the Apple case can do in terms of functionality, but looks too flimsy to me.

    Thanks in advance.

    For that price, the iPad case is probably your best bet. It may look "flimsy", but I have been using it for several months and it is holding up quite well. It does not have any screen protection (and I seriously doubt you will find any case that has a built-in screen protector at your price point), but I have a Zagg front protector - $14.99 @ Amazon.

    would still be open to some suggestions outside of that price range or other opinions.

    InCase

    I picked up the Incase at the Atlanta Apple store. I'm a road warrior and killed my first iPad within a week. The guy at the Apple store recommended the Incase as the most protective case they carried. It's professional looking - leatherette. Stand for landscape mode viewing and typing - with 3 positions. Ive had it a few months now and like it a lot. And I havent had to replace a broken iPad again!

    How about something like these?

    - iPad Stand Case in Black Vegan Leather by MyGreenMonkeyDesigns
    - Vegan Snakeskin iPad Stand Case by MyGreenMonkeyDesigns on Etsy

    The one I use comes from a different vendor (but unfortunately also a different price range):

    - Oberon Design Shopping Cart

    The case is just the standard case that Apple sells --

    Apple iPad Case - Apple Store (U.S.)

    The $14.99 price is for the Zagg front protector, not for the case.

    You described the Apple Case! Go collect your prize!

    I have one on my iPad and my gfs and it is great...nothing at all flimsy about it. As for screen protection...it is reinforced glass...unless you are storing it in a toolbox you have no need to "protect" it. Don't throw diamonds at it repeatedly or drop it out of a moving vehicle and it should be ok
