I'm kinda stuck on deciding whether I should buy a case that has a built in Bluetooth keyboard or just buy the Otterbox Defender and Apple Bluetooth keyboard. I'd only use the actual keyboard if I were to have to take notes for classes I don't normally take my laptop to, so not very often. However, the Apple keyboard seems kind of large and inconvenient to carry around at school.

Would you choose this (http://www.amazon.com/Menotek-Bluetooth-Keyboard-Apple-models/dp/B0049PN806/ref=sr_1_24?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1301439729&sr=1-24) or the Otterbox (http://www.amazon.com/Otterbox-APL2-iPAD1-20-C4OTR-iPad-Defender-Case/dp/B003TVWNAM/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1301440318&sr=1-1) along with the Apple keyboard. Thanks for any input.

Thanks for any input.

The keyboard in the Menotek is the rubbery kind without a right shift key. IMO, they're junk in terms of using it as well as feel. If a 'real' keyboard, only a little smaller, is important to you, get the Apple BT keyboard.

EDIT: I carry my iPad2 w/Smartcover and Apple BT keyboard in a Waterfield iPad Wallet.

If you are looking for a more portable keyboard solution than the apple keyboard you could try this:
