Default Ipad 3 Casing

I guess this topic fall under here since there no tablet thread.

So any ipad 3 user out there? Care to share casing for the new ipad.

I can`t believe casing can he so expensive 299 for smartcover from apple ? you kidding me ? that like 25% of my ipad value

Am looking at a smartcover + backcover combo, but they are all too pricey. Even a screen protector could cost you rm100

Any alternative, i looking online to purchase now...

To be honest, you don't really need a screen protector. The screen is pretty tough by itself.

If you're on a budget for the case, just shop online! A lot of those China replicas works just as fine, albeit a bit lesser in quality and build.

But if you are willing to spend, I'm using the iPad 2 version of this case: BOOKSTAND3 Macally Peripherals
A bit pricey but the build quality is awesome.

I used to have this case too for my iPad 2 before giving it to my dad. It's pretty awesome too, nice protection all around, but the extra weight is something you'd want to think about.

I've heard of good reviews of this Incase one and was actually looking for it before I bought the Macally one. Magazine Jacket for iPad 3rd gen by Incase

I just bought the "new" iPad (or iPad 3 to the rest of us!) for my mother.

I agree with Ken - you don't need a screen protector for the iPad. Its Gorilla Glass screen is really tough. It also has a oleophobic coating so it's easy to wipe off oily fingerprints. If you put a screen protector over it, you will lose that ability.

I still haven't decided on the case yet.. Hmm...

I would only use a screen protector on a phone, especially when they have to withstand keys and coins scratches from our pocket (handbag for the ladies).

For iPad, a good case would be a good idea, especially one that allows it to stand.

Don't put your phone in the same pocket as your coins and keys...

That's because I'm not as rich... haha...

I'm glad I use screen protectors. Lately, I've been cycling a lot, and the only reasonable place for me to keep the phone is in my bike pouch. And the things I keep in there are not very phone friendly (portable bike tool set, portable pump). The screen protector did keep the screen from getting scratched somewhat, and I've already changed a screen protector recently, and it only cost me like RM5 for 3 pieces from ebay. That's like nothing.
