I just bought a smartcase from apple store for immediate use to avoid accidental damages, but based on how it looks and protection it provides, I don't think it is worth $50, but then again you get a lot more compared to smart cover which is $40. I found following on ebay, which seems to be an excellent design and very functional, it comes with stylus and looks decent, only $10 shipped from USA. http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-New-iPa...es_Covers_Keyboard_Folios&hash=item53f2438add Trying to get some ideas, because I don't want to end up with something that bleeds color or sweats/absorbs moisture, etc.. I just need protection for screen and better handling for the ipad itself (it is too slippery when naked) so I can just toss it in my computer folio when going to meetings etc.. I just dont want to make it too bulky.
