    and i just noticed the first scratch, and it is surprisingly on the back, not the front. this sucks, i am already so ocd about this thing, and the first scratch is always a killer. anyone else notice that the back does not seem too scratch resistant?

    Not any more, with CIMOs gel case im all good! (okey, ill shut up about my new case!lol)

    When I came home from the apple store that treadful morning, I noticed a dent on the back of my ipad, its about an inch and a half! After a little hard thinking I decided against returning it as it Is afterall the first ipad to be sold from the Apple store in SF and it kinda makes it special! Plus, I dont really use the back that much! :)

    Not really a surprise. I would be a lot more surprised if you scratched the front.

    I got the incase padded sleeve plus as I also ordered the keyboard dock and did not want to pull the cover every time I wanted to place it in the dock.

    There have been a couple of those "moments" where I let it slip in my hand a little, with the gasp of air and everything as I prevented a drop. Little beads of sweat and all.....

    I think I am playing with fire a little bit without something on the back to provide a little extra grip so I don't drop it.

    Thanks to all of you now I'm going to be super paranoid about my 3G if/when it finally gets here. I know I won't be taking off the back plastic and it will go right into the apple case I ordered before I even turn it on. Thanks guys...

    I was thinking of getting one of the more inexpensive gel or silicone sleeves and carefully cutting around where the case would interfere with the dock. It should still have pleanty of grip at the corners, so it should stay on....Are you listening vendors?

    It would be a boon to be the first protective cover to allow for docking....I'm just sayin'.....

    I have personally found that silicone sleeves ruin devices more than protect. Last time I got one for a phone it screwed up the screen by collecting moisture and also the body was gross when I pulled it out. Never again.

    Earlier I was reading about an idea one of the forum members had. His suggestion (or hers, you never know) was to buy a book holder like the ones that fold up. It should have plenty of clearance to charge is portrait mode along with the added advantage of viewing/charging in landscape as well. Obviously I can't try it but those things are real cheap.
