    Try the accessory forum where people discuss hardware like keyboards.

    Enjoy!

    It's the first gen iPad Air (info via MacTracker).

    I have an Apple BT keyboard in an Origami case/stand. It just folds around the keyboard when not in use. (http://www.amazon.com/Incase-CL5793...8&qid=1416484062&sr=8-9&keywords=origami+case)

    If you're looking for a combo keyboard and case for the iPad, I don't have a lot to add, other than the Logitech one looked interesting. For me, though, I like to keep the Air "native" and stick with the Smart Cover.

    The iPad Air is the fifth generation, so you should be compatible with them.

    I have a Logitech keyboard on my Air, which isn't a case, it snaps closed over the screen, giving it good protection, it doesn't add much bulk or weight, it is very slim, and good typing experience.

    I also have an Apple Bluetooth keyboard.

    I use just a Smart Cover when I don't need a keyboard.

    I also really like the Zagg Keys Pro, which I have on my ipad4. It is heavier, very solid, and has backlit keyboard.
