Does anyone have a keyboard on their iPad? Where did you get it? How do you like it? I'm thinking I want one but am not sure and I don't want to spend the money and then not like it. Thank you

I have the Apple wireless keyboard for my Ipad....love it! I use it when I travel since it makes typing much easier. It was $99 and was a valentine gift from DH.

I have one that attaches magnetically like a cover on the front(Logitech). I like it in that I can turn the iPad vertically or horizontally when it's on a table. But there's no protection for the one side of the iPad when it's in my bag.

When traveling, I attach it and put the whole thing into a zip leather case that has a stand. That makes all a little heavy but still fits in my purse/bag.

I did have one that was part of a case the iPad slipped into, but the whole thing was really heavy and couldn't turn it vertically easily, so I returned it. DH has a Kensington case with built in keyboard for his and seems to like it a lot.

So, no perfect solution ...yet!

I would try them in the store and see how it feels.

Thus I became PunchPrincess. )

I have a Kensington bluetooth keyboard case that I bought on Amazon. It's really nice. Battery lasts forever and can be charged with a charger.

I have one and love love love it! My DH bought it at Brookstone. It really does make the Ipad more user friendly, especially when using it to answer emails etc.

I have the logitech bluetooth and then put it in a neoprene case. It covers the screen and the keyboard is really nice for the size. It got really great reviews on several blogs and PC online mags, etc.

I would research it and see if you can find one that meets your needs.

I also considered the Zagg cover and magnetic removable keyboard. A girl I know has this one and really likes it as well. It also got really great reviews.

We also have the Logitech Bluetooth keyboard (I'm using it now, in fact), and I really like it. When we had our first iPad, the reason we didn't like it as much was that typing on it was a PITA. But with this, it's more like a laptop and much more useful. Typing on it is a breeze. I like how it snaps together with the iPad and protects the screen when it's all closed up. I highly recommend it!

My DF has a keyboard and he loves it. He doesn't use his computer much, so a keyboard was definitely worth the investment.

I have the logitech keyboard that attaches to the ipad ($99) and love it - I also purchased a soft zippered pouch from Staples (I think it is swiss army brand or ?) because I like to use this at work.


I love the keyboard!!!!!

I also have the Logitech keyboard and love it. It's a little heavy when together with the ipad itself, but not too much. I also want a neoprene zippered sleeve for travel.

Mine is a Zagg that I bought for $99 at Best Buy. I love it because it is also a cover and stand for the iPad. The only thing I don't like is it is heavy.
