    Well guys this is my first thread. I pulled up a few pages and did not see any discussions about cases or sleeves.I just wanted to know what you guys are using and if there are any good deals out there.I picked up my iPad yesterday at best buy but they were all sold out of cases. Does the iPad 2 fit in iPad 1 cases? You guys recommend any particular one? Please forgive me if this topic has been raised already but I could not find one. Thanks

    You will find tons of discussions about cases and sleeves under "iPad Accessories" -- iPad Accessories - Apple iPad Forum

    But to answer your question, given that the iPad 2 is 33% thinner than the iPad 1, I'd be very surprised if a case made for one could be used by the other. Also, different users have different requirements as well as personal tastes, so you need to think about what kind of case/sleeve you're specifically looking for, and then it'll be easier for people to share experience and recommendations.

    I'll have a blue Smart Cover and bought a 10.2" neoprene netbook sleeve at Target to put it in as well.

    I did the same as some of the others and got the green smart case, and the nylon Incase iPad sleeve to also use with it. See how this will work for a while then might end up with another case down the road.

    I bought a booqpad Agenda, but have to wait until about March 25 till delivery. I put my gen 2 in the original Apple iPad case till the new one arrives. It's not a great fit, but for the way I use my iPad, it'll suffice for two weeks.

    I ordered the Zagg Case with Keyboard but they won't be shipping until the 31st. It's ok as I won't be ordering my iPad 2 until the 25th anyway.

    I have a green smart cover and red sleeve. I'm also waiting for the invisible shield full body to come so the back of my iPad will be protected.

    I purchased a pink smart cover & a pink Hard Candy Bubble Sleeve case for my iPad 2! The Hard Candy case is made for the original iPad, but the iPad 2 fits perfectly. I travel ALOT, so needed a case that #1 is TSA approved AND I needed it before Monday, so I stopped in office depot & picked this up! Will send pics if you want! :)

    I folded and got the smart cover. There was nothing else at the Apple store and I didn't want to try and hunt anything further down. I also didn't know if I was going to get slapped with HST coming across the border, so spending an extra $60 on the case I wanted wasn't in the cards (Targus 360).

    I'll finagle my way across the border and sneak it back in some day soon, but for now I've got my smart cover + my Targus netbook pursebagthing and it works fine. Allows me to cart along both of my iPads with me.

    I wish there were a few more options at launch, but that's what you get for being an early adopter ;)

    If anyone sees the Targus 360 at Best Buy, let me know!

    Griffin Portfolio Case from BB. I am very interested in this one though (though BB would have them in stores, and they do not), for Mac Cases & Accessories | THZ044US | by Targus.

    The Griffin is very similar to the original iPad case, just in leather.

    I really like the sleeves from Nedrelow, hand made wool. I have one for my MBA and ordered one for the iPad2, I like that they have an option for iPad + smartcover, and if you get the top loading you have access to the synch/charge port while it is in the case.

    When I got my iPad2 I purchased two the griffen leather sleeve and the Apple black leather smarter cover. I took the Griffen back the next day. I really didn't think it was made very well and seemed like it would damage the iPad. I then bought one of those neoopream sp? nylon zippered cases for the Ipad 1 ( mostly ) because it's for a thicker iPod. I can't wait to see what becomes available.

    I had one of these for about 18hours. The design is superior however it is made of fake leather and it stinks so bad I found that it gave me terrible headache and sore throat. Ymmv.

    Fake leather stuff tends to give off a smell at first, you just need to put it somewhere to air out for a day or two before using it.

    I have cheapo neoprene slip cover that I bought at Five-below for three dollars and an Incase 10.2" netbook cover for now.

    The "Smart" cover doesn't do it for me. Planning on a folio type case (griffin, targus, etc.)..... Like the one apple made for the original iPad. REALLY WISH THEY WOULD MAKE THEM FOR THE IPAD 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!
