    I dropped my iPad this evening for the first time. The corner that contacted the concrete got a bit dented up and slightly marred. Seems to be working fine (thanks to the protective faux-leather cover it was in) but I was curious if anyone has dropped theirs and ended up with much worse outcomes???

    Dropped mine with a case, all fine. Didn't even panic, just a wee "oh darn!" and didn't even look at it straight away. Felt confident. LOL

    Sorry about yours though ;(

    Ours have been dropped a dozen times now on hardwood flooring, but the ugly apple case does a remarkable job of protecting it. That funny lip around the edge seems to absorb impact nicely.

    Haven't dropped mine so can't speak to that, but thankfully you had it in a case so it seems mostly cosmetic damage. Makes a good case for using a case!

    A sad incident, but you made this photo really cool. Really like the blurry background!

    Thanks for making us more confident in the event it'll happen to us.

    Dropped mine onto tile floor. It was in a Zagg/keyboard combo. No damage whatsoever.

    I've thought about getting one of those, does the ipad "snap" into the case? Isn't the back of the iPad exposed still?

    I like your thinking...
