    I always had a feeling that by adding a physical keyboard to ipad , the point is lost .., we are then trying to make a regular laptop out of it ... while the real laptop works better ..

    I totally see what you mean and I initially felt that as well. However having extra keys like numbers and arrows make a huge difference for me when taking notes or editing documents. Couple that with a stylus and a feature-filled app like Notes+ or even Sundry Notes and it really makes for an efficient little "notepad." And this is coming from someone who totally did not "get" the whole tablet and smartphone craze. With the leather case/keyboard combo I can now take the iPad everywhere and it's instantly ready to do whatever I need. I also got the keyboard for my PS3 so it's working double duty for me.

    I got the Zagg keyboard for my iPad 1. Found I really didn't use it much so I did not get one for the iPad 2.

    This case here quirky - Fender iPad 2 Bumper just covers the edges of the iPad. Great as a around the house, don't need really tough protection case.

    Hey guys! Just ordered my iPad 2 from Apple (Black, Wifi, 16GB). Should be here by June 6.

    Now it's time to pick a case. Some of the things I would like a case to do:

    - Fold easily for typing on the screen.
    - Have a stand where I could watch something on it or have notes on it.
    - Protect all aspects of the iPad (I'm not wild about Apple's leaving the back of the device out in the open, nor buying something to supplement their already-expensive SmartCover).
    - Have the iPad sleep/wake when the lid is closed (and not mess with it if the cover is wrapped around.

    At this moment, I'm looking at the SwitchEasy Canvas for iPad 2. Are there any other ones that I should be looking at?

    I plan to use this a lot for teaching, so I would like something that doesn't make the device too bulky and makes it easy to carry around or throw into a bag without worrying that it's going to get destroyed along the way.

    ]I just saw in awful Sam's Club a nice Case Logic case that would work nicely for an iPad. Price was under ten dollars. It had a zippered pocket for wires, etc. I almost got one but I have one very similar.

    Totally agree with you.
    Defeats the purpose.
    Why not get a netbook then
    Like I always say, different strokes for different folks.
    Whatever one likes, one should have.

    Also like the Cygnett Folio

    Mine is eggplant. I needed a case in a hurry and found it at Fry's on-sale for $34. Cygnett Lavish Earth.

    I'd post an image, but not allowed.:(

    Everyone I know has a different case/cover - Dodocase, Portenzo, CardinalCase. My iPad 2 "should" ship next week - decisions decisions. I lean towards Portenzo or CardinalCase at this point. Thoughts?
