If it were just me, I would probably get a waterfield case and use it "naked". (Perhaps a stand would come in handy and I do not know what I am missing, not sure.) But, I have two kids and hardwood floors, and It is the hottest little gadget out the house. I need to be able to protect it some while it is in use. The plastic shells turn me off because they look cheap to me and I will be using it at work. I am not sure how much they would protect it if it were to drop anyways. The otterbox I am not sure about, but it isnt even out yet anyways. The Zoogue looks pretty sweet and covers most of the ipad. That oberon case looks awesome, but I worry about the flap not "bending" as in the gadgeteer review. Any strong suggestions on what I need? Post and PM me suggestions if you have the time. Not really concerned about money as I am about not wasting money on the wrong case, if that helps. MAybe I need multiple items, like a hardcase+ carrying case? I dont know. Thanks!
