    InCase Travel Kit Plus for extra protection when inside a backpack or laptop bag. - 59.00 $

    I know that sounds funny... buying two stylus pens.
    But i wont be carrying around my FrappeDesign Leather folio at home or out of work, and i would be tucking in one stylus inside the folio for taking notes while in the meetings on Penultimate app.
    The second stylus is a backup at home, just incase i forget to pull out the stylus while slipping out the ipad from the folio... i sketch a lot at home when not working. ;)

    I don't even have the iPad2 yet

    And I've purchased:
    - Square Trade Warranty
    - Tom Bihn Ristretto Bag
    - iCarbons skin
    - Smart Cover (which arrived Friday)

    It would make more sense if I actually had the iPad2, but ordering what I can get is somehow ego-enhancing. My iPad2 apparently (according to Yahoo) has made it to Ta Yuan Hsiang but the earliest it can leave there is 8:20am 03/22 IF they put it on the flight.

    $28 on Bookstand2b case (Sold it for $25 so net loss of $4)

    $4 and change on 3 pack of antiglare screen protectors @ handhelditems (iPad 1.0 version but punched a hole in top for camera).

    So total out of pocket $8 and change. I can't really stomach tossing $ out on overpriced accessories.

    Kept over from iPad 1:

    Waterfield iPad Slip Case - $29
    [should probably fit iPad 2 + Smart Cover, at least I assume so, will find out tonight]
    GroovyStand Dual - $19

    iPad 2:
    • Black Leather Smart Cover - $69
    • BestSkinsEver films - $15
    • iTunes card - $25 (not to mention how much I spent on iPad 1 apps)
    Possibly: TwelveSouth iPad 2 Compass Mobile Stand - $40
    [leaning towards replacing GroovyStand with it if the fit for iPad 2 isn't right]
    Possibly: PowerSupport Crystal Shield - $35
    [if I get too paranoid about scratching the screen]

    Likely more apps in the future, as always. Don't want to know how much I've spent on iOS apps in the years I've owned the devices, especially now with the higher iPad prices. :eek:

    Not too much new stuff for iPad 2, just the basics - could get higher if I decide to get a new bag in a few months. All this plus a refurbished/used ACD from eBay last night have taken a huge dip in my savings (affordable college student in Canada FTW), not to mention my part time job ends until I get another in June. :eek:

    So far just the smart cover.

    I am using a sleeve I had for my ipad 1 until the accessory market stabilizes then I'll order. I do not want a bunch of cases i bough on a whim piling up.

    None, I have no case on my MBP, iphone 4 or ipad 2. If things weren't so damn expensive for something so simple then id get them. Till accessories hit the chinese market ill just be cautious.

    Well... I spent some $$ but returned or plan to return the more expensive items. Here's a breakdown:

    Bought Smart Cover ($40)
    Returned Smart Cover (-$40)
    Bought Griffin Elan Folio Slim ($40)
    Ordered wrapsol clean screen protector (about $29 after shipping, yet to receive)
    Ordered Scosche foldIO for iPad 2 (about $38)
    Ordered PhantomSkinz matte back (about $23)
    Ordered cheap sleeve on Amazon ($4)

    I plan to return the Griffin case as soon as my cheap Amazon sleeve arrives. So I guess that'll put me at $94 worth of accessories that I'm keeping or have yet to receive.

    Oh, I forgot: I got the HDMI adapter, too. So that's another $40 for a total of $134!

    All I've bought so far is a targus case today for $43. I've set an accessories + software budget of $150 for myself, so I'm treading lightly until I'm sure about things, but I really really needed a case/stand ASAP. If something better comes along in the next month I might return it.
