    Hi everyone,
    Just thought I would introduce myself.
    I just got my iPad 2 16GB WIFI+3G yesterday from apple and I love the damn thing.

    It make browsing the web so much nicer. I'm even typing this on it and I'm sat next to my gaming rig.

    I've had the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 4S, I would like a mac book but my wallet doesn't like the sound of that.

    I'm looking for a case for my iPad as well as a front and back protector, I was looking at the iballz (funny name I know) but I'm still looking, if anyone can make a recommendation them please do!

    Anyway cheerio

    HafMan

    Welcome to the forum! I'm sure someone will be along shortly to give you a quick run through of the worth while threads etc.
    As for cases if you're looking for a slim functional case and aren't too tight on money I'd recommend investing in the apple smart cover, it's not only thin and light weight but is pretty darn functional as far as cases go. If you're worried about the back of your iPad too there are lots of compatible cases. Some are rubberised whereas others are hard plastic. I have personally bought a Gelaskin (a mm thick sheet of plastic that sticks to the iPad much like a screen protector, but for the back, and protects the iPad from scratches) although it doesn't protect it from drops, I personaly don't find that a problem as I also invested in a proporta leather case that the iPad slips into (including with an apple smart cover on) and not only protects it from drops but has a steel sheet on both sides to protect it from impacts to both the screen and it's back.
    All in all finding a good case is often personal choice and id look around and read multiple reviews before making your mind up on anything.

    Hi Hafman-Welcome to the Forum!! :eek:

    I am not familiar with the iballz brand you are referring to, but...
    I chose to use a plastic like casing for the back of my ipad and a screen protector in the front. I also purchased a really nice Timbuk2 sleeve that I can slide my ipad in for protection when traveling. It is really nice, compact and a plush inside to keep the screen clean when you slide in and out.

    I used the search function for you to pull up some previous threads regarding cases-maybe this will help you.

    Thanks for the informative reply MrLuke, I was looking at the smart cover. How does the smart cover attach it self to the iPad.

    I'll have a look at everything you've mentioned, especially the proporta case.

    Thanks Skimonkey I tried to post the link but I can't until I have 3 posts lol

    I think it's quite a clever concept, but a bit bulky.

    Thanks a lot for the threads I'm sure they'll help.

    Not a problem.
    In that case I look forward to you getting your three posts ;). The smart cover stays on the ipad using an enclosed magnetic strip down one side, this allows it to stick to one side of the iPad. In case you didn't know the iPad also has magnets on its front at its far edge. This allows it to sleep and wake your iPad (if you have the option enabled in settings) without ever having to touch the power button. Hope you like what you see :).
