    I use the Just Mobile Upstand.
    It's just so maclike as it matches the apple keyboard :)

    It's also very stable and holds both iPad versions while allowing the cable to be easily attached, removed.

    Not cheap as the base is solid c.£39.

    Why not take a look at the beautiful stands from our latest supporting vendor -

    http://padholdr.com/

    They do beautiful holders for both the car and home. I'm trying to get one for my iPad - hoping they're available in the UK.

    thanks guys.

    Hasty - yup, might just buy one of those. not cheap, but beautifully elegant and show off the device nicely. i love my ipod Touch version stand from them.

    Tim - thanks for the suggestion, but very ugly in design in my opinion. very bold and in your face and just not my cuppa.

    Want a free iPad stand?
    Use a 50x DVD spindle.
    The center works great. Why pay hundreds for a stand when this is free and you probably just threw one out...

    I bought one of those easels that you normally see a decorative plate sitting on at Target for $4.99. I use it to hold my iPad at work and for typing and it's working great so far.

    Love the plate display easel! Going to have to head to target tomorrow. Currently, I use the case/easel stand (the incase cover/stand)

    Sure, I have a suggestion for you: the "Spinpad" below. The price is good at Amazon ($29.95, reduced because it was born as a first gen. holder), the base is purportedly fairly heavy and solid, and it rotates and reclines to almost infinite positions. I'm sure I can use it for my Ipad2 but haven't pulled the trigger yet. What do you think?

    I like my Arkon Portable Fold-Up Stand for Apple iPad. I got it specifically for travel but it works well at home. Very lightweight and folds up .

    Plate stands are great until you try to plug in/remove cables, or tap too vigorously then the bloody things keep falling over.
    Threw mine away in disgust :)

    I use the Griffin Loop. It's available on Amazon for about $16 plus shipping. It's very sturdy, gives lots of viewing options, and it's a great value.

    I use this one, from Arkon:

    Purchased for well under $20. It fits nicely into the outside pocket of the Cocoon bag in which my iPad2 travels.

    I heartily second the recommendation of the Arkon stand. It is compact, simple and can easily be set to a number of configurations. The best thing that can be sai about it is that "it just works." I also like the way it can be folded down for travel purposes.

    I saw this one yesterday in a staples store. They had a kiosk of Brookstone items and this Ipad stand caught my eye.

    I would have bought one, but I keep my ipads in Yoobao cases so I didn't want to pull the pad out of the case each time.

    It looked really well made. Might even be available cheaper than $49 on the web with a search.
    Comes in red, silver or black too!
