I agree, to each his/her own. The back of the iPad surprisingly scratches easily. And while I do appreciate the sleek beauty and design of the iPad, it's too darn slippery to hold when naked (the iPad, not me). That's why I prefer a case that's slim in profile, easy to hold, functional (for example propping up for portrait/landscape), provides decent protection, and yet shows enough of the aesthetic qualities of the device. I currently have a Targus case specifically designed for the 3 with a magnetic cover that fits the bill. And I plan on getting an Otterbox defender so I can take my iPad outdoors when training my clients during bootcamps.
FWIW, my buddy kept his iPad 1 in a case in excellent condition, and got over $200 trade-in value towards his iPad 3.
