    Some people told me that they have to have a case that can make iPad stand, some says simple design slim type is best.

    What's your preference?:ipad-front:

    It depends on the situation for me. I use my iPad for work, and when I'm at the store, I use a Targus Z-case which is a sleeve type case. But when I go to trainings or conference meetings, I have a folio type case with the built in stand so that it's comfortable to use my BT keyboard.

    Thats the beauty of having a ton of different case options out there. There's always a case for your particular needs.

    I just wanted something that didn't make it feel like a wet fish. So I got a silicone rubber case for it. I have a separate stand for it.

    Appearance is all I pretty much care about.

    I have the Targus Truss case that doubles as a stand which is great, but then also closes over to keep the screen protected when not in use. It also folds over for normal use of holding it. Wouldn't have it any other way. I don't even leave my iPad down without the screen covered.

    Had a lot of criteria - and after studying what seemed like hundreds of options, eventually realized that no one case would meet them all especially since some of them are inherently at odds with one-another:

    a) multiple viewing angles - especially in landscape orientation but portrait too
    b) at least some degree of protection that's not just token protection
    c) the case won't alter/damage the iPad (some rubber cases I've seen for iPods eventually leave a sticky film behind, etc.)
    d) ability to store a few goodies - earbuds, USB cable, charger
    e) as small and light as possible - why get a tiny iPad just to carry around a huge case?
    f) appearance

    I ended up with Marware Hybrid C.E.O. which fits inside the STM iPad Jacket.

    Style for them dinners or casual get togethers with friends at the pub. For that, the dodo case. Looks good, and works as needed.

    For work, a simple griffin case. I can hold it, protect it while not in use and does as needed. Easy to remove like dodo case for when I get home - I like her naked.

    I have a nice leather slip case. Not much use but it has it's place from time to time..

    Cases to me are like shirts. Gotta match what is planned for the day.
