Sleeve only when not in use. I like the iPad not to be encased while using it.

Tons to choose from! Actually, if you want protection, the Apple case is not at all bad while you look through all the other choice out there. Several of which have long lead times to order.

I use mine constantly on the go, so I feel an apple case or similar would be the most useful for me, but if I were to use it at home while on the couch, I would just want a sleeve to protect it when not in use.

"Targus Hughes Leather Portfolio Slipcase"

This is the one I use. I prefer the iPad itself to not be in a case while using it. So I bought a protective case to carry it around in. This offers a ton of protection and looks stylish, too.

InCase Convertible Book Jacket.

I do a LOT of writing on the iPad in Pages. Typing accuracy shot through the roof when I bought this case because of the angle. I actually surprised the guys in the Apple store when I tried it out. I like all the other features, but I needed a case for typing. Any of the slight negatives in the reviews I've learned to deal with.

No kidding. I wanted a new case to replace my apple one, got to flimsy after a little while so I order from a company, I forget who at the moment, in 1st week of June. Suppose to ship in the next week or so. That's a long long time.

Are you talking about Cloak from Quirky? That case looks really good.

Not that one. I just looked and it's Otter Box: Defender Series. Looked like it ships on the 12th for me. It's a bit pricey at $89.99 but it seems like a nice case.

I use the Incase neoprene sleeve. I use my iPad naked otherwise.

Marware Eco Vue

Handsome eco-friendly leather case with typing stand and an incredibly useful hand strap on the inside cover so you can walk around with it, without having to grip (this is the KEY differentiating feature for this case).

I do like to use it naked at home, but the case gives solid protection for travel and ease of use while walking around using it.

I actually have the Apple case and have been pretty pleased with it considering all the negative reviews for it out there. It does collect dust easily but I got over that quickly as it is quite easy to clean. You can even just run it under tap water when it gets really bad. I've only had to do that once when I laid it on a dirty table. Mine's in the case almost all the time now as it makes it so much easier to type when folded over the back creating an angled position in my lap.

I currently use an Invisible Shield to protect the front and back. At the same time I am using the Macally Metrolpad and an Incase Neoprene sleeve. Never can be too over protective.

The Apple case. I don't want a case that turns the iPad into a freakin' laptop, size and weight-wise.

I prefer the Apple case. Additionally, I put it into an incase shoulder bag for transporting.
