    I have this keyboard case also and love it. The Ipad sits very solidly on the stand while using the Apple keyboard. Got it at Best Buy in the Apple section.

    I was thinking of getting one of these, but what happens when you want to lap desk-style typing? For Example, If I'm in bed or on the couch and want to use it, would it be sturdy enough or would it tip over?

    I am typing this while sitting in a lounge chair with the keyboard and Ipad in my lap. It is quite stable though it does fold in the middle as expected. If you are a touch typist and want a full size keyboard, this is a good combination in my opinion. I looked at the Zaggmate keyboard case combo and found it too small to type on comfortably. Also, sometimes I just want to grab the Ipad and go without hauling the keyboard with me. I love this setup! I also have a small neoprene Belkin case to put the Ipad into for travel. I don't mind two small cases when I pack. The total cost of the Apple keyboard and Incase Orgagami was about $100.

    As mark said there is a fold in the middle of the unit, usually what I tend to do when im on the couch is have a binder underneath the unit. imo that keeps it pretty stable and is just the right size without making it seem like you have a table on ur lap.

    First I want to say thank you applenut for starting this thead. After reading it I ordered my Origami workstation from Bestbuy and it was delivered today! It has to be the very best value of $29 I have ever bought & if it was twice that amount after seeing & using it I would not hesitate. We are going on a cruise in July & this case is wonderful for typing. Iy seems very steady & firm. jim_joh

    I don't get the excitement? This is the best compared to what? Don't get me wrong, I'm may go this option also. The thing is I will be receiving my Malware Case soon so I don't think this will match my setup.
    Do you all use the Ipad naked?

    I didn't say that I compared it to anything else.Why should I if in my opinion it really does the job I bought it for? You can leave the Apple magnetic case on but it is very easy to remove. Also I found it to be steady with the ipad in landscape or portrait. jim_joh

    I just received the Origami case for Christmas. Awesome!!! It works perfectly to hold my ipad in the perfect position even when it's in its case. Great addition to my iPad accessory family.

    You're not alone. I've had the OW for about nine months and it has served me very well as a case for the Apple Wireless Keyboard and as a stand for the iPad with the SmartCover and polycarbonate back cover. The shelf in which the iPad sits is wide enough to accommodate a fairly thick iPad care. Should be clear, though. This is a keyboard case, not an iPad case. I prefer it to combo keyboard/iPad cases because, as another poster mentioned, the AWK is significantly larger than the keyboards in cases like the Zagg.

    It bears noting, though, that you'll need a "case" (or messenger bag) large enough to accommodate both the OW and the iPad. The Travel Express from Waterfield Design (Need a case or bag for your laptop, tablet, mobile device, smartphone, or gadget? We've got you covered - WaterField Design - Made in USA) meets that requirement, but just barely. Other, larger bags will obviously work, as well.

    Should also be noted that if you're looking for a less expensive solution with a similar design, Logitech makes a keyboard with case that can serve as a stand for the iPad for about $70 total. However, the stand is not as well designed for use in one's lap as the Incase Origami Workstation.
