I have had the new iPad for 2 weeks now and love it! I only bought the iPad itself since I wasn't sure I would want to keep it. I have a vision impairment, and previous models were difficult for me to see. I'm absolutely thrilled with the retina display on this model; it was all I could've hoped for. So, YAY - I finally get an iPad!
I was wondering what cases you all like for your iPads. I've seen mixed reviews on the Smartcovers, although I saw one in person last Sunday and it looked great to me. I would also like a protection on the back, unless you all tell me it's not really necessary. Because of my vision impairment, I still often have to hold the iPad closer than most of you, so I'd like to go minimalist with a protective cover. Half the draw of the iPad is the lack of weight, so I'm not necessarily wanting to add another pound of protection or else my arms will ache in the process!
I've looked at a silicone wrap by Kays Case, but it doesn't support a Smartcover since it wraps around the entire iPad. I looked at the i-Blason back cover that does work with a Smartcover, and that looks nice also. I have no idea how to post the links to these on Amazon; I tried here and it didn't work; sorry. Does anyone have any comments on these, or others you've discovered that work well? And I'd also love to hear your experience with the Smartcover as well. Thanks!
