    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!

    £1 so far on a neoprene sleeve. Got a switcheasy canvas on order but no idea when that'll appear.

    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.
