I've already killed more time than I'd care to admit browsing cases and reading reviews. I have a couple ideas in mind, some of which depends on which keyboard I get (dock or BT). The issue I must contend with is the iPad will likely live on/around an ottoman/papasan (big round mork and mindy type) chair. Our MBP lives there now, sometimes in a typical laptop case, sometimes just sitting (lid closed) exposed to my 3 kids (and chihuahua) touching it, getting gunky fingerprints on it and sometimes the baby (15 months) even ends up sitting on it. For my kindle I have a silicone skin and a leather 'day timer' looking case that I feel really protects it. So that's one idea: a skin plus a bulky, don't-use-constantly case that the iPad goes back inside when not in use. The other option is a slimmer case with stand options (like the Apple case) but that the iPad goes in and out of easily, so if I'm reading and I want to reduce weight, I can easily pop it out of the case, but if my kids are using it, I can hand it to them with some confidence it's well protected. Leather would be preferred. Additionally I'll have to decide on some shoulder-strap option. Old and Indiana Jones leathery appeals to me. I don't think I'll face much or any 'man purse' criticism, and I'll refer to it as a satchel, so should be fine. Suggestions (and link would be awesome) for any of these options would be greatly appreciated.
