    1. Is there a point if you're going to have a Smart Cover protecting the screen anyway?
    2. Won't the screen protector effect the quality of the screen?

    No...if you are using it reasonably in a normal fashion, no reason to have it.

    I would get a case. But no not a screen protector. Your not shoving it in pockets or whatever. Do you need one on a laptop? A screen cover would effect the quality of the screen and feel.

    I tried using a ZAGG invisible shield on my iPhone 3G a couple years ago. I used it for a week and then removed it. It completely changed the friction of the screen. I absolutely hated it. I have had 4 iPhones and two iPads; never had a scratch of the front of any of them.

    The smart cover actually leaves 3 long marks on the iPad screen. Im going to get a screen protector to avoid those marks from the smart cover.

    In a year of very heavy use my iPad got one tiny scratch on the screen, but that was from trying to play one of those flick games with a metal based stylus, slipped and the metal edge made a very small scratch in the screen.

    Just keep it in a case that protects the screen when you arn't using it.
