Review of the ZAGGkeys PROfolio+ case and keyboard for iPad2-4

Apple uses their design prowess to make their iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc) sleek and beautiful. But that beauty hasn't made the devices safe from being damaged through normal use. It's quite easy to crack the glass on the screen, for example. It's important to put your iOS device in a case. With the right iPad case it's not only protected, but effectively becomes a laptop.

Like somewhere around a million other people I have bought an iPad. It's a beautiful piece of technology. I know better than to believe Steve Jobs when he gushes about a gizmo on stage but gosh browsing the web with this thing really is a beautiful experience. And the size is good, the weight is light enough to slip into the backpack I take to work, and not notice the iPad. That backpack already carries one laptop and if it carried two, that would be too much. With a laptop and iPad it's okay.

Is it life changing? That remains to be seen.
