    I take my iPad everywhere so it's in a case 24/7 and I don't have any problems with that... I really like my case

    I prefer it naked. Who cares if it gets some scratches? Not me. Cases take away from the experience IMO. By the time it's wrecked there'll be new version out to get.

    Well, some of that money was spent on the design. So I have to turn that question around to why spend so much money on something just to hide it away?

    Now a scratch on the screen is quite annoying so I do have a smart cover for that.

    I like to keep my things in like new condition as best I can too. I even save the boxes. So when i sell it on eBay I sell it as NIB not used...... Kidding :D

    I do save the box though if I plan on selling the thing

    Back cover on mine as well as smart cover.

    I agree, to each his/her own. The back of the iPad surprisingly scratches easily. And while I do appreciate the sleek beauty and design of the iPad, it's too darn slippery to hold when naked (the iPad, not me). That's why I prefer a case that's slim in profile, easy to hold, functional (for example propping up for portrait/landscape), provides decent protection, and yet shows enough of the aesthetic qualities of the device. I currently have a Targus case specifically designed for the 3 with a magnetic cover that fits the bill. And I plan on getting an Otterbox defender so I can take my iPad outdoors when training my clients during bootcamps.

    FWIW, my buddy kept his iPad 1 in a case in excellent condition, and got over $200 trade-in value towards his iPad 3.

    Protect back of iPad from scratches

    Protect back of iPad from scratches - with these bumpers that look like the ones on the back of a Mac Air and protect back of iPad. So when your iPad isn't in a case or sleeve and you set it down, no scratches. They work with the Smart Cover too. So simple! i

    I bumpers look like a great idea if someone doesn't want much on there

    +1 here too. CIMO thin TPU cases are nice and inexpensive. iPad 2 cases are about $6 and they DO fit on the iPad 3, just a tighter fit. Their iPad 3 case is much the same, though designed to fit more properly and takes into account subtle changes like the new rear facing camera location, etc. Both work with the Smart Cover. They're not fancy, but they look good (come in several colors but I find the black and the clear ones to be the best), give protection wothout adding bulk, they make the iPad more comfortable to hold and give it just enough grip and not be grippy. I have the appropriate ones for my iPad 2, which I've kept, and for my new iPad 3, which cost $11.

    I'll take this back now. I just picked up the Kensington clear back cover for iPad 2 that fits the iPad 3 beautifully. I works with a smart cover and I do like the way it feels for carrying around and holding. Not as slippery as the bare metal.
