I like to keep my stuff nice, but I'm generally careful with what I own in the first place. I have a MacBook Pro and it has no scratches so far. So my question is, do I need a case to keep the back clean? Obviously this will change if the iPad 2 has a different back.. but I'm pretty fond of the shape/design and aluminum back. I certainly hope they don't decide to go with the curved edges in the mockups, the first design is so much nicer. I found my iPod touch 1G to be a cooler design than my iPod Touch 4G.
