    I ordered a screen protector just to be sure but I wanted to know....are they really necessary? It seems like the screen is pretty scratch resistant...especially if you have it in a case.

    really depends on you, how well you take care of stuff, and what sort of environments you're in.

    I tend to prefer the peace of mind of a screen protector. On the other hand, I recently used a friend's ipad who doesn't use one and has had it in the Apple stock case since he bought it close to launch last year -- and it looked pristine.

    In the end though it's sort of like insurance -- if something happens you'll wish you'd had it.

    It's glass. So how easy does glass scratch? Not easily.

    Yeah I was noticing that my friends glass was pristine and he doesn't have a protector on it...just the ipad case.

    I already ordered one so I'll definitely put it on. Good to know that it's pretty resistant though.
