I have dropped my beloved iPad 3 times now (not clumsy surely?) and I am delighted to say it appears to have come out unscathed. Still working flawlessly. Last time was when I knocked it off the bar in my local pub onto a quarry tile floor. A huge crash which had the whole pub looking my way. OMG I thought, a big embarassing expensive mess here. Picked it up, played cool and switched it on. Ho ho, no problems here, then I slid quickly out the door to double check it. The Apple case gets some slagging off here but I reckon it has saved my iPad from damage. Highly recommended especially for clumsy types. Good idea to check your accidental damage insurance aswell.
