    I just found an awesome iPad case and I pre-order it at once.

    The Crux360™ is the worlds first clamshell-keyboard case that allows you to use the iPad® in a multitude of positions. It’s features an full bluetooth® keyboard. Great for entering large amounts of text for emails and word processing. In addition, the Crux360™ Features four modes:

    1) Laptop Mode, which allows use of the keyboard.
    2) Movie Mode, great for watching videos, playing games, or just surfing the internet.
    3) Tablet Mode, great for reading books or magazines.
    4) Carry Mode, when not in use the Crux360™ closes up and protects your iPad’s® screen from nicks and scratches.

    The Crux360™ does all of this while still allowing you access to all the ports and buttons on the iPad®. The Crux360™ is great for students and road warriors who need the portability of the tablet computer and the functionality of a laptop.

    This is actually what I've been waiting for. I was holding out for the Clam Case (www.clamcase.com) but Crux just got my money.

    I'm not looking to make my iPad into a laptop but I do like the protection it offers, different form factors and using an occassion keyboard.

    I also wanted the $99 clam case but the delays and lack of communication are killing me. I ordered the $149 crux case 360 and they are scheduled to ship starting March 10. I do have concerns though. 1) Their website still does not have a specs tab listing weight, length, etc. & 2) Their website does not have the basic customer login so as to check on order status etc.

    I contacted Dan, with their company and he assured me they were working on updating the website. That has been 7-10 days ago.

    Sorry....but you may as well get a laptop if you're going down this road.

    Your opinion... But for me there is a massive difference in the apps of the iPad as compared to the software of the laptop, and several other differences between the two. So I try to get the stuff I like better such as the keyboard and incorporate it into the iPad. Works for me...

    My only reservation would be the fact that for a new (unproven) product, it's quite pricey. As another member has pointed out, they're trying to sell a product for which specifications haven't even been published yet. It makes you wonder how extensively the product has been tested before actual shipping, or if it'll turn into another DodoCase...

    I was sure I would be getting a Bluetooth keyboard case but waited until I used my iPad for a while. Boy am I glad I did! it turns out I'm a speedy right hand typist and I love laying around or standing up (in line) writing away. The one thing I wish was on the list of keyboard choices is the one designed for one hand typing that takes to account the most used letter combinations so there is less lateral motion using one hand. They can be for right or left. Someone said the French keyboard is faster so I tried it and was surprized how easy it was to adapt to a new layout but it's not made for one hand so it really isn't any better.
