I pre-ordered my first Ipad (3rd gen) and am now wondering what case to get. I am thinking the smart cover with a clear back protector and a sleave. What do you think about this set up? What do you use?

I am thinking about this sleeve because it will sometimes be in my backback with a binder and sometimes hard textbooks. It seems like with the plastic and foam this sleave would be the best for my senerio.


What other sleaves or cases would you recomend?

you realize there's a whole section on accessories (including tons of case threads) above, right?!

I have an ipad2 and after all the searching, thinking, etc. I finally went with a screen protector (Power Support antiglare and anti fingerprint -which I love) and an iCarcon skin for everyday.

I have a sleeve for when I travel and then added a Macally DualStand2 for the built in stand for travel. This setup works perfectly for me. I like the 'nearly naked' for home because it's so light. Ditched my smart cover after a couple of weeks cause it just got in the way.

I'm duplicating the same setup with my new iPad. But if I were taking my iPad to work or school every day I would probably go with something that adds more protection like a folio. (I'm retired so I only worry about home and trips).
