I ordered a dock from day one, which actually got here before the iPad due to the backorder the ipads were/are on. Anyway, I haven't even used it yet. I have the apple case, and it doesn't fit into the dock with the case on, so I don't want to have to remove the case every time I want to charge the iPad. Besides that, I find that I'm using the iPad in landscape mode 99% of the time, and you can't do that in the dock. Worst 29 bucks i've ever spent.
