    Apple care does not cover if it's dropped of physical damage! Just thought you'd know! Keep it safe!

    Ghost armor: $50+
    Sena folio: $80+tax
    =
    A lot of effing money

    I carry it around in the same man purse/ammo bag I've been carrying books in for years, and I don't really see the need to upgrade. It fits the iPad and the keyboard, as well as another thin book or two.

    Yes, but it is protection, which was the question. I don't make a habit of tossing my tablets (iPad, Android, or Kindles) across the room. But so far most cases of iPad deaths have been hardware failures that are covered.
    I got a silicon skin which is pretty thin and provides slightly more grip. I like the feel of the iPad, but prefer it being protected from most bumps and scrapes.

    I just bought the Apple case. I looked at others but I liked the way the Apple case can fold to give a small slope when in landscape mode. I find it easier to type like that.

    I also bought the invisible skin screen protector but I took it off after about 15 minutes because I didn't like the feel of it.

    Then I did buy the Best Buy two year accident protection. Pricey, but since I am taking my iPad on a cross-country motorcycle trip next week, I thought it might come handy.

    $9.00 on a silicone case from Amazon and $13.00 for a case to put it in when in my handbag. The case is actually for a net book or portable DVD player, but fits perfectly.

    I love the cases from Oberon design( handmade in California) but they're $130. I'm sure I'll give into temptation eventually, I always do.:D

    I've got the Apple case, but I rarely use it. Mostly, mine is knocking around in my briefcase. So far, so good.

    I have not spent anything yet...I might get a TPU case and a dock. I bought 4 cases and 2 screen protectors for my samsung vibrant and only use 1 case and prob wouldn't use that if i wasn't worried about the camera lens ..never bothered with the sp.'s because I just love the feel of the naked glass... avoiding going overboard!

    So far:

    £7.50 on a leather folio case (eBay)
    £15 on silcone back cover (PC World)
    £20 on padded messenger bag (eBay)

    Still waiting for messenger bag but feel this will probably be best for me as my iPad comes everywhere with me and I wanted something more robust than a standard case, the folio is ok but not sure I want a case that detracts from the aesthetics of the iPad. With the silcone case I still get to see the back and 'feel' the iPad.

    I couldn't find anything I liked so we started a company making customised cases, handmade to order. I wanted something slim, lightweight and that could double as a temporary stand. I keep my iPad in my bag so didn't need lots of padding

    So quite a lot of money on a case/protection if you take in to account the business investment and the time factor :)

    I lied. I thought I was done spending, but I broke down and ordered the STM Scout XS bag in olive drab. So add $40 to my running iPad accessory tab, please.

    I have a cover and a carrying case, but if anything happens to it like getting dropped or water damage I got a square trade warranty that will pay me the price I paid for it so I can go buy another one.
