    1. No, not presently, but I own one
    2. Yes, the feature it worth it but other cases provide the same feature.
    3. Lots, since I don't have to turn the screen off. I could not live without it, frankly.
    4. When I actively used it, yes, I would take it off during long sessions.
    5. Because it was easy to remove and taking it off made the iPad a bit lighter for long sessions.
    6. My favorite is the Bodyguardz Garrison, a folio case. My next favorite is the Bear Motion.
    7. The Apple SC is too expensive, but the leather version is nice. I got a black one...I might get a red one. They work fine when used with either a skin or a plastic back cover.

    1. Yes I use the Smart Cover
    2. Yes I use the magenetic on/off feature
    3. Saves a lot of time over the long haul. I like it because I just flip the cover closed and go.
    4. I remove it somewhat often
    5. I like the feel of how thin the iPad 2 is
    6. On the back I use a Gelaskin of my design and then the whole thing into a cheap neoprene sleave I got at $5 Below
    7. One of the major appeals to me of the iPad 2 is how slim it is. I had a SwitchEasy Canvas which did it's job but I started to hate the bulk it added. Best investment was the Gelaskin in combination with a leather Smart Cover I got on Ebay for $7 (including shipping). I take it out of the neoprene case except when I'm moving around (commuting to work, etc...) and the gelaskin and Smart Cover are all the protection I need. I even let my 10yo and 8yo daugthers use it and I don't worry about it.
