    The issue with the apple case is not it only hard to keep clean, it has no closing mechanism like band, magnetic etc thus the screen remain exposed in case of fall.

    I really rate it as one of ours has had several drops onto hardwood flooring and the apple case has done it's job.
    It's not the most attractive, but the raised lip around the edge is a great shock absorber.
    Cleaning is just a quick wipe with a damp cloth, though I use baby wipes since theres loads in the house......

    For a lil cheaper than the apple case, I went with a targus one from bestbuy, the inside is padded, it has a few levels for typing or watching movies, and it has a latch to keep it closed when not in use.

    I wonder how hard it would be to add a couple of magnets or a bit of velcro to the case???

    As Roxas stated it's all going to matter on how it's dropped, what angle, etc. etc. I have the case, the raised edges/lips on the sides really will give it some bounce, but that doesn't mean it's going to protect it. It's all situational.

    Best thing to do is avoid dropping it, buy a sturdier case if you're that worried about it. No-one here can make any promises that it won't break the screen or do some damage.
