    You asked....

    For me best cover = Apple case

    Best carry case= $7 netbook case I got at Best Buy. My iPad with Apple case fits snug...

    Best screen protector = none, no point in having one...

    Waterfield cases are very nice. A little pricey but worth it

    That looks like a nice case. I just received a REALLY nice smoked TPU case from ebay for $12 shipped that is pretty similar and I am very pleased and impressed. You can't beat the price and the quality is what I would expect from the likes of Griffin, etc. Here's a link: SMOKE TPU TINT SKIN CRYSTAL CASE COVER FOR APPLE iPAD - eBay (item 170485528237 end time Jun-11-10 22:22:25 PDT).

    For screen protection I went with the Power Support Anti-Glare film based upon the review at ilounge.com: The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection | iLounge Article. At $25 it isn't cheap but I'm very happy with it. I know there are a bunch of people that feel a screen protector isn't necessary or that there isn't a point in having one, however I strongly disagree. I'm not typically a screen protector fan, but there is a huge point in having one if you plan to use your iPad outdoors or in brightly lit environments. I've used an iPad naked and the sun glare outdoors was too much for extended reading without purposefully angling the screen making the experience somewhat frustrating.

    The screens are definitely resistant to scratches (NOT scratch proof) but that isn't the only reason to use a screen protector. If you're couch or cafe surfing you probably can get away without one. But not everyone fits into that usage category. So for those using their iPad in a variety of environments that are subject to glare I give my vote to the Power Support anti-glare film.

    Covers for Ipad

    I was carrying my Ipad around with no cover until I saw the zippered soft cover for my eee Netbook that I had never used. The IPad fits into it perfectly. I'm also a fast crocheter so I made a few IPad totes out of different colors. Find someone who crochets, have them make 2 equal sides of colors you like that are the same size as the IPad & a 2" wide handle or buttons for the edge.

    I came here to find out how to organize my apps. Many thanks for the alpha hint.

    I have plenty of storage left but my apps are going to my front page now. Is there a limit to the number of pages you can have?

    Many thanks,
    Bonnie2716

    Don't go cheapest. You get what you pay for. I did that with my iPhone years ago. I just ended wasting more money.

    I use the Power Support Anti Glare for the screen, Speck CandyShell and the Exo Sleeve from Waterfield Designs. These are all good quality items that will protect your iPad. I posted pictures of the items on here somewhere. Good luck.

    I'm in Newfoundland. It's raining.

    My iPad has arrived, my Apple case has not.

    I'm too cheap to buy an aftermarket case until I have evaluated the one I've already paid for.

    I want to take my new baby to the office.

    Solution?

    Grocery bag! The best waterproof case ever... :D

    The Griffin case is not well designed. The upper retainers pull on the on/off button and the volume button. Not good and i'm stuck with it...

    Both come from the same factory in Donguan (China)… i use one and i like it despite the first generation have some size problem and plug problem … in my eyes this is the best protection for iPad as that can enter in many cover or directly in a bag

    M-Edge Latitude

    I just received my Latitude Case from M-Edge and I am a big fan. It opens up the possibility of carrying the unit without a bag as it zippers closed completely to protect the unit. It also has a small accessory pocket on the front for head phones and camera connection kit and VGA adapter (at least that it how I use it). It also reverse zips to hold the front cover in place when using! Big fan so far!!
