I thought it would be informative to know what case was purchased for the new Ipad, and your purchase considerations. I personally just purchased the Otter Box Defender. On my first generation Ipad I was never completely confident of the protection my various cases offered.There were a couple of close calls where I held my breath that the Ipad survived being knocked off the bed or accidentally dropped. This time around I made protection the first consideration. It looks like the Otter Box will offer excellent protection as well as function, and I think it is a pretty sharp looking case.
