I love how it looks and all its features but I have been thinking of steering away from any case of that type because they all seem to weigh a third as much as the iPad 2. Part of me feels that there's little point in spending a lot of money on something that's small and light, only to put a case on it that makes it heavier and (a bit) bigger.
So I was going to go with just a Smart Cover, a Best Skins Ever rear skin and a Waterfield case to hold the iPad, bluetooth keyboard and other bits & bobs.
Your post however has made be reconsider. Again. (I seem to be going round in circles with this!!) I love the idea of a stand that'll work on surfaces that aren't completely stable, like my lap (the smart cover needs a flat surface) and the hand strap.
I know you said no more posts on this subject so I don't mind if you don't answer this, but do you read on your iPad? I read quite a lot on my iPad 1 which my girlfriend will get sole use of soon, so that is the only reason I'm concerned about weight as this is the one situation where a few hundred grams can make a big difference.
Most of my use is reading, I take breaks to check the post. My face is in the pad all the time that was a Big deal for me. I have to have a Light & Thin with good protection. I don't understand why someone would lug around a keyboard or metal two piece case! It's clumsy. I have a apple smart cover which is light but the magnets loose connection far to often and I don't want to keep looking around for a detached cover or case for that matter. I read in portrait mode,flip the pad open my book or web page is right where I left it. Phone ring or knock on the door, flip snap the corner and I'm good to go. Cover is beautiful although fake and corners are protected unlike others.
Don" t feel bad about being on the fence we all are and it kinda fun. Besides you can always return any case you get just keep the shipping box.
