    By definition the CASE- is designed to what? Protect your iPad yeah?!

    Take your iPad in said Case and drop it on the floor from waist height will do, not unfeasible that would happen during the course if your day,

    Pound to a penny says it offers zero protection what so ever......

    And give it a couple of months or so it ll look like sh*t aswell.

    Waste of money......

    I m all for minimal- I have incase slip cases for my iPad/macbook air,

    Minimal oh yes- but for transportation offer at least a degree of protection.

    There are some nice alternative covers around, but with poorly thought-through designs e.g. the iPad slips in from the top, instead of slipping in from the 'hinge' side of the cover, or covers that only use little corner tabs to hold the iPad in place; I want the edges protected, with no chance of the iPad slipping out of the case!

    Must say I also really like the Apple case - the overall design is just about perfect, I just wish they offered a slightly more padded version in leather or ballistic nylon with a velcro closure on the cover. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

    Cheers, Pete

    p.s. And no logo!

    Have you looked at the incase slip sleeve?!

    The fit is very snug, there is zero chance of it slipping out of the top,

    There are more and more cases coming onto the market all the time, having popped into a random pc world yesterday for something unrelated they had 3-4 different cases and are getting more and more!

    I really prefer the 'book' style cases to the slip case - I want to get a hands-on with the Marware Eco-Vue and the Incase Folio, both look like the might do what I want. Hadn't thought of PCWorld, will give my local one a try when I'm next over that way, thanks!

    I remember I also read you were given a iPad to try out before actually buying one. It must of been a good feeling being the first to buy the iPad.

    Damn if you'd only taken an harmonica and a dog on a string you could have had that pad half price........

    I have the Marware Eco-Vue and it really is good. I would also like a slightly less bulky case (hey, don't we all like to change our clothes sometimes?!) but I cannot fault the Marware for ease of use, adaptability, and protection for my baby.
