    Digital AV adapter, Smart Cover, some other case, Apple Care...?

    I'm only really after the Smart Cover... but the adapter might be hard to pass on.

    Hope the belkin slim case (clone of apples first iPad case) is some how magically available at bestbuy tomorrow. Will buy screen protector if available since I am OCD with my costly gadgets.

    Nothing. I already bought a netbook/iPad 1 soft case. I don't think I will be getting the smart cover. $40 seems too much for something that doesn't cover the back and could potentially scratch the sides.

    Already bought and received a Targus case, dock extender for a speaker dock, and a Griffin A-frame stand.

    I am only getting the iPad dock. I hated the first gen dock, but this time they were smart enough to add a "lip" to the dock so that it will slide into the dock much better.

    The Smart Cover doesn't interest me. I almost thought about getting one, but ultimately it's just not worth it since all it does is protect the screen. When I travel the iPad will be in a sleeve case.

    Smart Cover and possibly a Screen Protector if they have any.

    none.

    It's funny how Apple can proclaim a $500 entry price, but most people will probably go for the 32gb ($600) then they can easily go away with adding a dock ($30), leather smart cover ($69), adapter ($39), keyboard dock ($69), oh and then of course add some applecare ($79). Then when you add tax you end up spending nearly $1,000!

    I'm just gonna get my $500 iPad and then later if I realize I need some other accessory I will consider it.

    I'm on the fence about the smart cover...something about magnets and brushed aluminum doesn't sit well with me.

    my basic plan is get a zagg protector all around it and THEN get a smart cover down the road if its necessary, i'm kinda digging those dodocases though. I like the fact that I can walk around like Penny from Inspector Gadget with a bookputer.

    black pad, green smart cover, hdmi dongle

    hoping my current ipad dock will suffice...although i never really used it anyways..so i guess it probably doesnt matter

    Completely forgot about the dock... I passed on the first one. Maybe that instead of the cover... I hate how indecisive I can be sometimes, lol.

    I order Best Skins Ever, last accessory I bought from Apple was the Bumper. Bumper was the worst piece of crap I have ever used, glad they gave me my money back so I am not buying into the Smart Cover until I get more input.

    Green smart cover, HDMI adapter, hopefully some kind of protection for the back, but I doubt anything will be available in terms of skins / protectors.

    In addition to a Tan leather SmartCover, I might get a Zagg full body if BB has them tomorrow. After seeing the iPad + SmartCover in use, I really don't think I can go back to using a thick case on my iPad.

    Apple can certainly claim a $500 entry price, because that's exactly what it is. A $500 entry price, your post just proved that.

    It's the same with car manufacturers saying "from $14,995." Add options, and the price goes up.

    I don't see how or why you are complaining here.

    Definitely the HDMI dongle, but that might be the only thing. The smart covers are interesting, but for those prices, it needs to cover not just the front.

    None for me. HDMI is nice but I will probably wait on it. The Smart Covers are nice looking but I think they are overpriced for what it is.

    I plan on invisible shield and Belkin Clear Vue once it releases.

    Agreed. If you buy a phone, you buy a case, bluetooth, case and car charger blah blah blah. The cost adds up. The same thing applies here.

    don't listen to this guy. This guy is the one who is looking and hoping to pick up smart case for like 15 dollars on craig list some day. Never gonna happen. Don't complain here.
