I am surprised that the hardest thing about owning my iPad has been figuring out how to transport it! Originally, I purchased an STM case to carry it while I waited for my Dodocase to arrive. I LOVED the STM case as it was slim enough to fit in my work bag but had an accessory strap for when I headed out with only the iPad. Unfortunately, the dodcase+iPad combo does not fit. Asthetically, the Dodocase is the *perfect* case for me. However, the iPad will not stay in it when it is vertical (a common problem, I am finding). Also, I have noticed that mine will not stay upright for that perfect typing position as well as expected. Still, I love the case so much that I have overlooked these drawbacks for several months. I am at the point today that I realize it is silly to use a case that does not fit the purpose that I purchased it (protect and elevate for typing). I have read all the case threads extensively and I have figured I need to either go with a back protection (ie: Belkin Vue) and bag...or something that works the way I expected the Dodocase to work. I was looking at the convertible incase case--not the portfolio one. If I opt to follow the other route, are there products that are comparable to the Belkin Vue? I have seen it at my local Target for $30 but there are also options on Amazon.com that are considerably less. Thanks.
