I am considering OK pretty much convinced I am going to be buying an ipad within the next few weeks. I am woodworker and intend to have it in my studio as I work so I am looking into a ruggedized case. I am not overly concerned about my dropping it but am concerned about something being dropped on it and even more about dust. With the type of work I do I generate a lot of sawdust so I am looking at something that protects the ports. Also I will be using it as reader around the house and church so want something that is not too bulky and easy to use in my lap. I would appreciate any suggestions forum current users.
