Hi anthonyq,
Presently, I'm using the wonderful and useful booklet from the hard working folks over at Gnarlyfish. I purchased it at The Source
http://www.thesource.ca/estore/prod...e&category=Tablet-accessories&product=1711339

The main reason I love this cover, aside from the fact that's it's actually designed and created in a nice dark genuine leather.
It also has a marvelous Bluetooth keyboard built in, which makes it extremely user friendly. & It's very comfortable to type on, while the iPad is in the vertical position.
It's quite easy too, to simply remove the tablet from its confines, when I want to clean the screen with a lens cloth and cleaning fluid.
Or when I am in flying-cruise control mode mood, soaring with my Parrot Ar Drone 2.0.

Ah, good luck finding a nice protective cover for your iPad.

Chas,

I watched the video, it seems that this unit is very thick and a bit heavy. I have the logitec keyboard and it's very thin and light. What are your thoughts on these two important points?

Hi luckyleo,
Yes, it is thick and heavy, just as was the thick and heavy sack of change it cost me, that this awesome unit was to purchase.
I looked at a couple of those other plastic covers that were available that day and had no interest in those items.
Looking good and feeling great are prerequisites for me as well as price.
It didn't seem the other cases were of much essence, aside from multiple color choices.
Besides I do leather work as a hobby, so this booklet, with Blue Tooth keyboard, fits right in to my liking already.

The Bluetooth does on occasion, seem to lose it's connectivity with my iPad, but that's the only minor flaw which I have noticed already.
But it's a nice snug fit, and it does look quite handsome. Much like it's present owner, I do declare. Smile

I hope that you find a case or cover that pleases you, as much as this one does me.

Ah, wishing you good hunting.

I did not want a keyboard, just protection for the iPad. It took me a lot of looking and reading reviews at Amazon, but I decided on the Targus A7 iPad Slip Case for $14. It has arrived, and I'm very pleased.

I got tired of not having arrow keys, so I went keyboard shopping. I found the Snugg at Amazon for about $45, and I'm fairly pleased with it. Its case is aluminum, so it matches the iPad, and the two devices snap together and fit in my Targus sleeve. The keyboard is smart, so I use it to put the iPad to sleep.
