    I spent a lot more than I expected:

    70 for a smart cover

    20 for a zagg back shield

    10 dollar for a brandless screen protector

    25 dollars on a black leather sleeve for ipad+smart cover from ebay

    and I couldnt resist

    so 60 more for a incase bookjacket

    so about 200 dollars with shipping...I shouldn't have gotten the sleeve if I knew I was going to get a separate case for commuting.

    Another point is that I can't believe the leather smart covers are 70 dollars when I put it next to my 60 dollar bookjacket, I mean magnets and leather I know...but its just a flap...I dont know if its the bookjacket thats cheap or the smart cover that is expensive..

    Well I've done some buying and returning, but the final total is:

    Verbatim Foldable keyboard: $62
    Switcheasy Canvas:$50 (came with surprisingly good screen protector)
    Stylus: $20

    Plus tax + shipping

    I'm not willing to talk about the cost of apps...lol

    It was all worth it though. This thing is awesome!

    I was thinking about this on my way to best buy today when I was going to look for accessories for the iPad. so far I've gotten cheapo eBay case for the back $8, cheap screen protector $3, and a case logic tablet carrying case $12.

    A couple things I'm eyeing are a smart cover because they are coolmand the white carbon fiber bodyguardz skin thing. I think the bodyguardz skin will spend how much big the screen protector is.

    Well, the first thing I needed was a wireless router in my house as this is the first wireless device that I have owned. I opted for the Airport Extreme for $179 since the future is wireless. Then there was the tan leather smart cover for $69. I also bought AppleCare for $79 because I am conservative on these things. Later I bought a 2nd USB cord so I would not have to unplug when I wanted to sync. And lastly a useful book titled "Portable Genius" for about $18; I am used to learning from a book like that. And a variety of paid applications like MotionX and Golfshot. Ok, I am in for over $1000...time will tell if this was worth it, but so far I am having fun!

    I spent $15.00 on a silicone cover and about $20.00 on a wooden music stand that works great as a holder. $60.00 on my Apple Bluetooth keyboard. That's it.

    Screen protector for the iPad? Waste of money if you ask me.

    The iPad...priceless. For everything else there's MasterCard.

    Ok, I'll be serious! Smart cover 44 bucks, and later a leather folio cover for 15 dollars.

    About $200 for three iPads. A car charger and three extra wall warts were the major costs, but were worth it, for convenience.

    $30 for a inviz shield screen protector
    $40 for blue smart cover.
    $30 for inviz shield screen protector number two after the first one got dirt around the edges of my white iPad, I now know to expect that with the white iPad so that's the last time I'm buying a screen protector.

    I have spent a total of $167.00 I really shouldn't have, but biggest purchase was for clam case, got open box for $70, then there was extra long power adapter, stylus, neoprene sleeve, screen protector, 2 different cases 1 has built in stand, a separates adjustable stand, a carry bag that was for portable dvd player, but ipad fits perfect, then a car charger. I think that is it, god I hope that is it LOL

    I find that a matte screen filter helps enormously on reducing glare and reflection because I use my iPad outdoors a lot, and virtually eliminates smudges and fingerprints, so it's quite a useful accessory for me (and many others, I'm sure.)

    Ordered from Apple the IPAD DOCK $29.99. Then naturally..........

    Last week BBuy had a sale 20% off IPAD accessories but you had to buy 3. Why not?

    Origami keyboard cover $29.99
    Apple wireless keyboard $69.99
    Baby Blue non leather Apple Ipad smart cover $39.99
    Total after 20% off = $111.97

    Then I read on the forum a good cover for the back of the IPAD from a Ebay seller for $10.19

    Then I bought a Case Logic bag to carry my IPAD and keyboard for $23.00

    Total about $175.00 and I still am waiting for delivery on the IPAD on Thursday!:)

    I resisted the Vaja or Pielframa cases, so it is only about 45€ for a senacase and 35€ for a wireless apple keyboard, maybe a Moshi iVisor later, so I will end up with a good 100€.

    So far I have spent £20 on getting the official apple iPad 1 case (which I personally think is garbage), £20 on my next case which is the Griffin Élan Folio (I've always liked Griffin products and they have never let me down) and £8.99 on a Case Logic E-Sling bag (which I bought as a result of a YouTube review by itsmemorphious) to take my iPad to work with me and all of my other stuff.

    Odds are in the coming weeks I will buy several different cases for my iPad just like I did with my iPhones before then. I'm a slight accessories junkie!

    I spent $15 on a Boxwave stylus, about $30 for a soft padded carrier case and another $25 or so on a protective silicon backside casing (probably has a more defining name but I can't think what it might be at the moment..).
    No one has mentioned the "nifty" holder cushion with plastic embedded grid for comfortably balancing the iPad on ones lap or on a non-level surface. I have never seen one of those but have read about them somewhere and would dearly like to get a hold of one.

    Not including apps, I spend a good deal on my setup and I'm quite happy:

    Zaggmate for iPad2 - $100 + free Zaggbuds because they were late with shipping
    Gelaskins skin for iPad2 - doesn't work perfectly with Zaggmate, but nothing a razor can't fix - $30
    Smartcover - $40
    Helostrap - $20
    VGA adapter - $30
    Griffin Styli - 2 x $15
    Griffin Car Charger - $15
    Multiple sync cords ~ $40

    Everything else was software where I spent about $100 to get a productivity suite including QuickOffice, TaskTask, Mobilenoter, Jump Desktop and some free apps. Will probably buy a driving game at some point.
