    I like my ipad but fee like I use my computer more since I type much faster on it. I thought about buying the keyboard. Is there a mouse too that can control the iPad? I just feel like it would be weird to use a keyboard and have the ipad lie flat on the desk. That doesn't sound too comfortable.

    Do you have trouble typing on the touch screen? I actually prefer it to the laptop keyboard. Not sure about mouses, I doubt it

    I type over 100 words a minute on a computer so the ipad keyboard will automatically be a downgrade for me. I have gotten better when its vertical but the display is easier when horizontal so I never know what to do.

    There are mouse apps ans bluetooth mice and bluetooth keyboard fromm zaggmate. But i dont think u can use both at the same time. But if you are using ur ipad to type u are really doing to much, unless ur a midget i dont see why anybody would want this cramped experience.

    @ FatalDesain....Geezo do you like your ipad or not? LOL dang you're grouchy today

    re: keyboard, I got the Zaggmate for Christmas, its a bit tight but I'm getting used to it. I chose that over the apple keyboard/doc because it packs up and travels better. So depending on your needs you could do a keyboard with stand then you have no worries about the ipad laying flat. You could also look into a case/portfolio that ramps the ipad at an angle which makes it quite easy to type on the screen keyboard.

    I know how you feel. I'm a touch typist and I do better with an actual keyboard than an onscreen keyboard.

    You can buy various Bluetooth keyboards or Apple's own keyboard with a dock connection so you can dock your iPad on the back of the keyboard and not only that it is connected but also that the iPad stands upright.

    But a mouse? I'm not too sure of it.

    The iPad was designed to be used as a touchscreen, you're mean to touch the screen, that's why it don't have a mouse pointer on screen.

    I couldn't have put it any better than this, it's almost like as if pmmartin illustrate my point, but a great away of giving an example.

    Nice one pmmartain.

    So the keyboard dock that is 70 bucks......you can stand the ipad up on it? If so I may invest in it. Also anyone know if that keyboard feels good in your lap? Thanks.

    Auto correct and the spacebar not always being pushed when I think it is are my main complaints with typing. It's a learning process. I can still type kind of fast on it, but I will often have to edit my posts once or twice after I post it and reread it. I think that Zagg keyboard case is pretty cool. I don't see what use a mouse could be since it's a touchscreen though.
