Getting a good case for your iPad is so important! It's about more than what looks good! A good case is like insurance for your iPad!! I know this from personal experience!! you want one with good corner protection, among other things. I accidentally left mine on the trunk of my car & drove off!! The case is what saved the iPad! It has a small dent on one corner where it hit the ground when it fell off the trunk, but other than that, it works just fine!! The screen didn't even crack!! it fell off & landed in the merge lane of the interstate, and didn't even get run over! A good case costs more $$, but its well worth it in the end!! I'm SOOO glad I spent the extra money & got the Knomo case instead of a "cute" cheaper one!!
