    Haven't got dock but think the extended lip of the apple case would get in the way.

    Honestly never needed a dock as I use a simple plate display stand that supports the iPad alongside my main monitor, with apple case and sync connector on.

    I have yet to find a case that fits the ipad that is compatible with the dock (although I think, somewhere out there, I saw an ad about one. I've tried a couple including a CIMO gel cover, a Belkin rubber cover, the Eco case by Marware and the Apple case. I also have a special stereo speaker setup that has a pop out adapter for an iPod that fits the iPad - but only works with the iPad when it's out of the case.

    There's an awful lot of speaker systems out there that have indented slots with an iPod type of connecter - it would be nice if someone would make an extender with some kind of base so that you could use these with the iPads.

    You can pretty much count on all cases not working with the dock.

    get a cheap buisiness card hold to stand up the ipad and use the cable. Save money in the process.

    @DavidNM: A cable does exist that allows you to use current iPod setups (speakers/docks/clocks/etc) with your iPad.

    CableJive Apple dock extender
    dockXtender: Dock Extender Cable for iPad, iPhone and iPod

    I don't have one, but I know it's going to be useful when I can justify the need for it. I only have one music album on my iPad, so I have no need for the cable. All my music is on my iPhone which I carry around more than my iPad.

    It looks like the commuter case by otterbox works with the dock. But I don't dock and I don't have that case. So I can't be sure.
