    This is my first post and I just got an iPad 2 and the apple smart cover last weekend from best buy. the iPad 2 works great so far and this is my first apple device. Still learning how to use it :confused: and try to setup iTunes...

    the best buy staff suggested me to get the smart cover when i bought the ipad2. Ok i got it because i know nothing about it. After I went home and play with it... I just realize the smart cover ($39+ tax) cannot protect the entire machine... and it left the back unprotected ...i am little bit upset... :mad: too bad, the packaging was gone, and i could not return it.

    also .. I am not completely comfortable the way smart cover attach to the iPad2... looks like it may drop :eek:

    NOW the iPad 2 is placed on top of a piece of velvet to prevent any scratch... I really need something to protect the back and i don't want to spend another $50 to get a good quality folio case.... now I am stuck!!! any economic way to solve this problem???

    Please help!!!

    Sophia, I had the same problem just like you... :) and techdude really offered some popular choices...

    After doing a lot of research on what is the best back case to work with smart cover... (don't want to make the mistake again)... i decided on getting the zum sc ultimate case ... i know.. i haven't heard about this brand also... but heard some good comments in this forum

    The best thing I like the case is it has a SMART COVER LOCK that can physically interlocks the back case with the iPad 2 body... all the other cases simply offer a cutout for the smart cover hinge to attach...

    I ordered it from amazon ...and its only $19.99... i think its a good deal ...anyway I should get mine later this week... and i will write a full review on it

    you said that you bought your ipad 2 and smart cover last weekend?
    then you can still go back to bestbuy and return the smart cover.
    i dont think they will charge you for any restocking fee.
    after you get refund, you can buy a case that can fully protect your ipad

    Sophia, you can go to buy only a ipad 2 smart cover mate, or some ipad 2 Smart Cover + Back back may not spend $50, the Asteria ipad 2 Smart Cover + Back back is not bad.
