Thanks. what skin do you use? Are there several choices?I agree about it being over-priced but it is a great accessory which is very easy (sometimes too easy) to remove. I use it in conjunction with a skin on the back for rear scratch protection to keep the iPad as thin and light as possible.
I have a gelaskin on my iPad 2. Just ordered one from SkinIt per my posts here. I've ordered from them before for my MacBook Pro.Thanks. what skin do you use? Are there several choices?
he means, its gorilla glass. it scratches if you make scratches on it. It doesnt scratch per accident that quickly. And when you make it fall, it doesnt matter much what kind of smart cover is on top of it. It needs a good case in that case.It doesn't need protecting why? It can scratch, it can also smash.
I managed to get a few scratches on mine, I'm sure I bought my screenprotector anyway because I had constant fingerprints and the glare. But yeah, your right. They shouldn't scratch easily and if you drop it I doubt the smartcover will make much of a difference!he means, its gorilla glass. it scratches if you make scratches on it.

I use BSE on the back. It's shiny, and adds the perfect amount of grip to an otherwise slippery back. Easy to apply for me. Instead of the recommended spray liquid on the skin then apply, I used a rectangle glass baking dish to dip it in, then shake off all the liquid, then apply and use a cloth to soak up any droplets of water that come out.Is the BestSkinsEver,mate or shinny finish? easy to apply?
I didn't know that such skins existed. That's very cool and I definitely want to do some poly covers up like that for my own company. We do custom woodworking and I'd love for the sales team to have all their iPads with "wood-like" paneling skins. Is there such a beast out there? I even looked into having some laminates done up that could be cut to fit for that purpose. I also looked into getting custom wood back cases developed but the cost of that is prohibitive given each one would need to be hand-carved unless I ordered like 1000 of them.
WOW!!! Thank you for suggesting this! I had been slowly talking myself into liking the idea of a case for an iPad that will stay indoors 99% of the time. All I wanted was a way to prevent scratches without adding weight. These Gelaskins are beautiful.
This is what I'm doing too. Any input from folks regarding the back? I have AppleCare and will have a pretty hefty sleeve (saddleback) for transport, but what are the situations in which you guys have seen substantial wear to the back?Is the back of the iPad similar to an aluminum MacBook? My 2008 MB does have some scuffing but all things considered it's not that bad. I carry it around a lot.
I'm thinking of a smart cover with a sleeve if so.
