Hey! I'm pretty close to making my decision on getting an iPad, but before I do, I want to think about everything I will need. So, I was hoping to get some advice from those of you that have already purchased your iPad and know what works, what doesn't, etc. So far, I know I will need: Keyboard dock Case(s) I'm planning to wait to get the keyboard dock to see if I really need it. I want to use the iPad and see how much I would be using it and if it is really worth getting. I'm on the fence of whether I want to get the one specifically for the iPad for the extra convenience, or if I should get the regular Apple keyboard since it would have more uses (i.e. as a keyboard for my PS3... assuming the range is good) So that is something I'm not a big hurry on, I just need to make up my mind on which is going to work best. I know I will want a case, I just haven't decided on which one. I know the Apple store had quite a few when I was there a while back, but I will have to make some time to take another trip out there. I was thinking about a silicone case, I really like the one from Griffin that Best Buy has, and then possibly a regular slip case (if I remember correctly, Apple had a monkey case from Paul Frank that matches the case on my Touch) However, I don't like silicone cases that well because they catch everything (although the Griffin one didn't seem too bad and it probably won't be as bad since I won't be putting it in my pocket) but I do like the protection and the extra grip it gives. But, I was also thinking about getting something like the case Apple has that would allow me to sort of dock the iPad as well (especially if I don't get the keyboard dock) However, I've heard Apple's isn't too good and I'm also not too fond of how it looks. So, if you have any suggestions of cases I should look into, that would be great. I do have two additional questions: 1. Can you use a mouse with the iPad? I didn't think you could, however, I talked with someone online today at Apple and they said you could, so I wasn't sure which is actually true... I'm thinking my mom may really like to use this for her business when she is away from home and I would like to make it as easy for her to use (i.e. as close to a regular computer as possible) 2. Do you recommend a screen/iPad protector? I currently have one of my iPod Touch and I'm glad I do. It makes me feel a lot more comfortable when I use it because, honestly, I'm not afraid to use it Otherwise I would always be worried it is going to scratch and stuff. As far as I know, the iPad doesn't scratch as easy, but I'm still thinking a protector would be nice. I've used Bodyguardz in the past (on both iPod Touch's and my Blackberry) but when I put it on my most recent Blackberry, the quality didn't seem as nice and I wasn't happy with it. I know someone I watch on YouTube had one and you really couldn't tell it was there, I can't remember the name (have to look it up) I think it was iShield? I know Best Buy had it when the iPad was first released, but I don't think they do anymore. So, do you recommend getting the protector and if so, which one? I think that is everything, if you have any suggestions of anything else I should consider, please let me know. As usual, sorry for all the questions and thanks for any help!
