I just bought an iPad 4, and (since I rarely spend this much on myself) I'm really paranoid about taking care of it. All the special snowflake details inside...
The main things I'm planning on using it for are surfing the web while on the couch and watching movies and TV while on the treadmill. I have a shelf set up in front of the treadmill, so I don't need to rest the iPad directly on it, but it does get a little wobbly if I'm jogging hard.
I'll probably wind up traveling with it at some point, but I won't be carrying it back-and-forth to work or anything.
I was originally looking for something with a fun design, but now I'll settle for just functional.
Based on this
previous question I was looking at BookBooks and Dodo cases (they're both beautiful!), but I'm concerned they won't function as a sturdy stand for movie viewing.
I also found this one
via that thread, but I'm still concerned about sturdiness. Also, we bought a similar case for my mom's iPad at Christmas, and it took several tries to get the thing to fit. And I am known
for breaking things with my freakishly large man-hands. (Doorknobs, handles, important little plastic bits, etc.)
The best the Apple store could do was a $40 tripod thingie to go with the $50 SmartCase.
Any help, especially first-hand experiences, would be appreciated!
