    iPad with only the magnetically attached smart cover is perhaps not the best idea if you need to walk around with it. The magnet holds the pieces pretty good except when you close the cover and grab the iPad with fingers only. If your fingers somehow slide or slip on the smart covers end, the the magnets will detach almost immediately as shown in this video.

    I'm using a Smart Cover right now (love it!) and I'm waiting for a skin to come in to put on the back. I like the Smart Cover because I like the "wake from sleep" idea - not that concerned about the screen.

    I'm not too concerned about scratches, it's just that I like a little less of the cold metal touching my hands.

    If I wasn't so fascinated with the Smart Cover, I'd have nothing on the iPad (well, except the skin for "warmth"). I like my iPad as light as possible...

    I have the otterbox defender and I love it. It does add a bit of weight but I dont mind as i have a 19mo little boy. Also the plastic removable hard cover for the screen has smart cover technology so it wakes the iPad when removed it also doubles as a stand in viewing and typing modes. All in all its a great case with a built in screen protector.

    I just bought a incipio feather lite case for the back in black that's made for the third gen iPad, so you don't need a cover made for the second gen.

    Couple of questions on the smart cover by Apple....Does it fit perfectly on the New iPad ? There was some news that the sleep/wake feature was not working with the Smart Cover on the New iPad ? is that True ?
