I received the Apple iPad case today. Here are some thoughts: It fits snugly around the iPad. Don't need to force it in. All ports and buttons are easily accessible. The material is neoprene like, and makes carrying the iPad feel a bit more secure that the glass and aluminum. The weight is not noticeable when added to the device, which can feel a bit hefty at times. The front cover folds backwards into two positions, the first being completely folded over. This allows for holding the iPad as a table, though it can be a bit awkward due to the thickness and the added bump of the insert tab. Which brings me to the tabbed fold. The front cover is hinged about a quarter way through allowing it to fold and the edge of the cover inserted into a tab on the back of the case. This forms a narrow wedge shape allowing the iPad to be propped up at about a 75 degree angle. Not functional for use, but good for viewing. Thanks to the auto-rotation, lying the wedge down quickly turns the ipad/case combo into a keyboard/monitor. A big improvement over working with the iPad flat on the table, though still a far cry from a traditional keyboard and monitor for look and feel and ergonomics. The biggest problems for me are the additional flap that emerges from the central fold. It seems to serve the sole purpose of providing stability for the case when in the upright wedge. But can get in the way in other situations. The tab insert on the back, like any clip on the back of a phone case, can get make for an awkward grip at times, but is low enough profile to only be a minor annoyance. I am still waiting for my keyboard dock, which I hope will come in handy for lengthier typing sessions. I am curious if Apple gave enough thoughts to whether or not an enclosed iPad can still fit into the dock. I am loathe to get in the habit of frequently removing the case. Anyway, it is good enough for now for me to stick with and wait for something else to come along that exceeds the Apple case in quality and functionality.
