What sort of cases are you guys buying
for your new iPad?

I am still waiting on the official case from
Apple to be made available:

http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC361ZM/A

Has this leaked into stores as of yet?

If not this case, what did you folks end up buying?

It's out in the Apple store already. I bought one and it's... just okay.

For $40 I would rather buy something
better if the Apple case does not cut it.

To be honest just a silicon sleeve for the backside of it will be plenty for me. I'll get a stand, but thats pretty much good for me. I'll also get a screen protector probably.

I'm not an apple fanboy (check my posts) but I love the case.. It's very well designed-- as I just posted in the "its too heavy" thread, the triangle configuration is perfect for holding the thing-- you can grab rather than pinch it, using bigger muscles in your arm, making it much more comfortable to hold for long periods.. Plus it will sit on the desk in either portrait or landscape, and closes to a very small form factor.

Going to store tomorrow so if
someone has a strong recommendation
for a case let me know which one
you bought. Otherwise will look
online for one.

Still curious to hear the shortcomings
of the official Apple case

I think it's bulky still. I don't want something that the iPad has to "wear" all the time.

I have this for my Kindle and would love something similar for the iPad. I'm really more in the market for a sleeve:

The Apple iPad case is not bulky in the slightest. The packaging was super thin and the actual case adds less than a few millimeters. It is a bit tight the first time putting it on but the second time and after, it loosened up. I'm also using it to prop the iPad up when charging or in picture frame mode.

Try looking at www.medgestore.com, they are going to have several different covers for the iPad. I have several for different types of Kindle's - 1st generation, 2nd and DX - they are well made and last very well. The Latitude Jacket is on that you can enclose the iPad into and zip it up and store a little in it as well... If you don't like them, just search the internet for: iPad covers. I am going to give the Apple cover a look see and try it - but I have to wait for my 64-3g.... patience is a what?:eek::confused:

I can't really tell you about the "shortcomings" of the Apple case. I had one delivered yesterday. Fedex showed up with the case about an hour after UPS dropped off the iPad. What's to say. It's a rubbery textured sleeve that fits like a glove. The iPad just slides into a slot and a flap of vinyl tucks over and behind it to prevent it from sliding out. In addition to giving some protection to the screen when not in use, it provides a very grippy surface for the expensive electronics inside. I've constantly used the "tilt" configuration with the cover flap tucked under the the iPad and into a little tab to keep it in place. That position is great for typing with the iPad on your lap. The cover does add some bulk. The naked iPad feels very nice in your hand while the case makes it feel a little bigger. But, I don't see how you could get much more minimal than the Apple case while still providing some reasonable protection.

I compared the Apple case and the inCase sleeve at the Apple Store on launch day. I decided on the inCase sleeve. The Apple case seemed like cheap cardboard. I also wasn't sure whether it would scratch the iPad after a period of time.

The inCase sleeve has the same white soft inside as the other inCase sleeves. Instead of a zipper it has a flap. The flap is a little tough to get on and off the iPad but i suspect that it will get easier as it gets broken in.

I ended up ordering the incase zipperless sleeve too, in the silver color. I think it looks really really nice. Plus I've always had good experience with their stuff, it's good quality.

I picked one up at the local Apple Store. Like an earlier poster mentioned it's nice to have a little more to hold onto. I felt like I was just using my fingers to hold the iPad naked and this case makes it easier to just grab onto. The inside cover is microfiber so it will help keep the screen clean, but be careful opening it all the way and setting it down because that microfiber is now face down on your table and could pick up <insert disgusting/damaging table top debris here>. The cover makes it feel more like a book in an odd way and I like it. It rides in the crook of the arm easier. My iPhone has silicone but I like Apple's iPad case.

When using it to prop up the iPad I wish it was a little more tilted (more like the dock).

I didn't like the apple case. Seems too flimsy and I didn't like the logo.

The only similar case they had was the incase convertible which is what I got. It's a bit bulky but it also helps to hold it. It also has multiple positions to angle it. Not bad so far.

Does anyone know if you can dock the iPad when in the Apple case?

NJRonbo
Apr 4, 2010, 06:24 PM
No, not on their dock.

That's the big hub-bub right now for people
who bought the case and dock. You cannot dock
while the iPad sits in the case.

I think the Apple case is just fine. Very simple to use, I love the way it props the iPad up in landscape mode etc. No it's not super sturdy etc, but the only thing I want to protect my iPad from is scratches while holding it. I've never had a single scratch on any of my iPhones (iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS), and neither has my wife (same phones as me), so I'm not worried about display scratches. I just want some nice, simple, non-bulky protection, and the Apple case gives me that. I do think it's overpriced at $40, though.

I love the Apple case as well. I felt it was super thin, not bulky (compared to some iPhone cases I've owned) and I like the fact that it folds over the screen to give the screen some light protection. When holding it with the flap folded back, I feel like I have a good grip. When I hold the iPad naked, I'm always paranoid that it's going to slip and fall out of my fingers.

It's going to cost you a pretty penny, but the Vaja iPad case is pretty nice looking; rather similar to the iPhone cases. Also of note, Booq has a three-sided sleeve that will fit the iPad. I've used products from both companies and have been happy with the quality.

I agree. The Apple case serves the function very well while maintaining a very thin profile for the iPad. It's seems like a much better alternative to all the other thick and bulky cases available by third party vendors.

Ordered the Apple Case and the Marware and will decide which I like better for my needs and taste. It looks like the Marware is going to fill more of those needs. Big part of what I want to do is to take it out of the case often/daily to use it naked, and use the case for transport protection, stand and typing platform. We'll see. Link to it below:

I like the apple case but may end up getting one of the mar ware cases too. Not sure if I'd get the vue or the flip though.

I went ahead and ordered the Marware Vue as well. I think the back hand strap will be very useful. I plan on swinging by an Apple store tomorrow and may pick up the Apple case for the mean time. If so, I'll take pics and do a comparison review.

I have a few of these cases for Kindles and they are really nice and not too expensive.

It's crazy to shell out big bucks when these cases are so nice.

Apr 4, 2010, 10:04 PM
Like the case a lot... Can't imagine using the iPad without the stand. As far as "sharp edges" — they're not sharp at all. They're just edges, and meant to add a bit of stiffness to protect the iPad in a fall.

Kinda wondering how the iPad would do if dropped in its case, though... I'm sure it's much better than naked iPad, but by how much?

I have the Apple case and I like it a lot. The stand is good for having the iPad stand in many directions. It makes gripping the iPad very easy and is thin.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it gets very dirty. It picks up any dust, dirt or crumbs and needs to be wiped down almost as frequently as I need to wipe the fingerprints off the iPad.

Typing in landscape as the iPad sits on a table is very easy as well.

That's good that people like it as I ordered it from Apple with a delivery date of the 20th. Then I find out that they are plentiful at all the Apple stores and even Best Buys .

Of course it's to late to cancel the order with Apple as it's 'prepared for shipping'.

Prepared for shipping?

As we know this can drag on :D

I originally was going for a larger portfolio out of leather. I ended up with the Apple case and I really like it. It's nice and thin which matches one of the reasons I bought the iPad. .One reason I picked up my iPad early was to make sure I got the cover, they had a ton in stock. Guess I could have slept in yesterday. I will be returning my dock tomorrow. No need with the case, plus it doesn't work with the cover.

I don't get the point of just a silicon case to cover the back. That's the best looking part of the iPad in my opinion. I personally like the apple case, it sucks it has to be slid in and fits snug, but I love the ways you can prop it up, fold over the cover, and how light it is. Definitely a worthwhile purchase for me.

I'm kind of annoyed with the case makers. 10" Netbook cases are $10-25 and almost all of the iPad cases are $40. This is just for a crappy neoprene style case.

Anything I even half want is over $100.

The case I really want the padova, but seriously I am not paying $209 for a case for an electronic device (http://www.orbino.com/store/index.php?cPath=176). Even the Vaja is crazy expensive for what they are.

Tested that on an iPad in the Apple store, well i will not recommend getting it, no grip on the back really and where you put your fingers on the bezel the silicone is flappy and does not stay on really. Overpriced as well.

I looked at those 2 covers last night at the Apple store and ended up getting the "official" Apple case (the last one in the store). Both of the Incase cases were just so very thick and looked like they would add far too much bulk to the device. I really like the case I got much better; it is very "grippy", so thin it is almost not there, and folds into a handy easel for typing or viewing, plus it has front protection when you need it, and weighs almost nothing. My iPad still fits easily into the netbook pocket or my Timbuk2 Freestyle bag with the case on. For now at least this is the one for me.

I agree that it (like every other iPad accessory) is way overpriced, but I love how thin it is and the easel function. And the easel is shallow enough that it makes a good grip when holding the iPad in portrait mode.

I'm not an apple fanboy (check my posts) but I love the case.. It's very well designed-- as I just posted in the "its too heavy" thread, the triangle configuration is perfect for holding the thing-- you can grab rather than pinch it, using bigger muscles in your arm, making it much more comfortable to hold for long periods.. Plus it will sit on the desk in either portrait or landscape, and closes to a very small form factor.

I can't really tell you about the "shortcomings" of the Apple case. I had one delivered yesterday. Fedex showed up with the case about an hour after UPS dropped off the iPad. What's to say. It's a rubbery textured sleeve that fits like a glove. The iPad just slides into a slot and a flap of vinyl tucks over and behind it to prevent it from sliding out. In addition to giving some protection to the screen when not in use, it provides a very grippy surface for the expensive electronics inside. I've constantly used the "tilt" configuration with the cover flap tucked under the the iPad and into a little tab to keep it in place. That position is great for typing with the iPad on your lap.

But, I don't see how you could get much more minimal than the Apple case while still providing some reasonable protection.


couldn't have said it better myself. It adds very little bulk and offers a bit or protection if dropped. The volume rocker is a tad hard to press though, but overall it is a good case. It actually looks like a case that someone put some thought into designing.

I like http://www.booqbags.com/laptop-backpacks-laptop-bags/iPad-cases/taipan-sneak-xs-black-iPad-sleeve

Is this a nice tight fit or does it slide around inside?
I'm just leery of getting a repurposed 10" netbook bag.

I typically hate cases that stay on the device all the time. I love the look and feel of the iPad. But the Apple case makes typing and holding it so much better.

I just wish Apple would make two improvements to their case:
1. Make it dockable
and/or
2. Make it easier to slip the iPad in and out of the case

Couldn't agree with you more, can't understand how how an apple Case made from apple won't be dock able on an Apple dock. I'm so upset!! But not sure if I should return my dock or not, then again taking out and putting back the case is not easy either.

I always liked charging my iPhones and such on docks.

This looks promising (http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20000986-1.html).

Is this a diaper ??

"Oh look... baby made an iPad!"

:)

Ya..uh that's not a diaper. Try again, it'll come to you when you think of the name of the device slid into the middle.

I have the Booq Boa Skin XS which is basically a slipcase with a hard back for screen protection.. I like this case because it's easy to insert and remove the ipad (I like to use my devices naked), and it doesn't add too much bulk to the pad when I have it in my backpack for travelling.
