    How many of you all using the iPad Pro bare, without any sort of cover.

    For me, I only use a MacBook 13' sleeve.

    I do the same - I've always used my iPads without any cover. But if I need to transport it or hide it away, I always put it in a sleeve. I have used sleeves from UK Wrappers, which has some nice elastic bands to keep the iPad safe and tucked away.

    But for the iPad Pro, I also plan on using a sleeve for the Macbook Pro 13. I perfer the ones made by Acmemade - their skinny sleeves with elastic bands are very cool and has some nice color choices.

    With my iPP I picked up I got both the silicone case and smart cover and honestly thinking about returning both because I think they doubled the weight of the device, they are very heavy. and the absurd $140 cost. Basically it pays for AppleCare+ and a sleeve.

    I'm leaning toward naked with a sleeve, as long as the sleeve can securely close so the device doesn't slide out... anyone have iPP sleeve recommendations?

    Bare right now - but mostly because of the dearth of decent cover/case choices

    I will get the Logitech case and keyboard when it becomes available. Hearing good things about it.

    Does it fit snug, is that just a workaround or are those sleeves a viable option?

    That's a great suggestion! Love neoprene and Acme Made and have to seriously consider whether I need the Smart Cover/silicone back.

    I use the Smart Cover because it's necessary to have *something* to prop it up with. I generally put a piece of clear tape under the magnet so that garbage isn't ground into the case.

    There's a detailed review today at http://arstechnica.com/apple/2015/1...s-the-ipad-pro-keyboard-case-you-really-want/

    I love, love, love the Logitech Easy Switch keyboard K811- a delight to type on and pairs with three devices. But the photos in the Ars review have me seriously reconsidering the Logitech keyboard case. (Love the keyboard but don't love the case design.)

    I tried it in the Apple Store. It makes it heavy.

    Yep, a sleeve off Amazon and the Apple keyboard when it comes, that's it.

    Re the Logitech keyboard, also of note is how difficult it is to remove the iPad from it by all accounts. Wasn't in the market for it anyway, but that would be a deal breaker for me.

    The Ars review claimed it weighs as much as the IPP! :(

    I have a Targus case I got from Wal-Mart some time ago for my Air 2. The Pro fits in it so that is how I carry it around. It is very light and was around $20.

    It makes it weigh the same as a 13" Air. It's almost has heavy on its own as my 12" MacBook. It makes a lot more sense (to me) to carry both than it does to carry a monster keyboard. I recognize that this isn't exactly a cost efficient option, but the weight is just a non-starter from my perspective. It also doesn't appear to offer a quick way to get the iPad in and out, which would be critical to me.

    It is real, I tried it in the Apple Store. You definitely feel it.

    No choice, the smart over should arrive in the next 2 weeks.

    Naked now but will be picking up a smart cover as there is no other way to prop it up. Makes for a great second display via Duet

    Apple's expensive silicone back. Never have held any of my iPads naked.

    Have the Apple case on my air 2 which goes everywhere.
