When the iPad honeymoon is over, and you realize that it’s great the 3% of the time when you just want to surf or read, but nearly useless the other 97% of the time when you want to do something productive, you can either throw it up on Craigslist and replace it with the laptop you probably should have bought in the first place, or find some way to fix its shortcomings.
If you decide to go the latter route, for just another $149 you can turn the iPad into a pseudo-notebook with this Crux360 clamshell case which includes a Bluetooth connected keyboard. The case can also be contorted around allowing you to still use your iPad as an even heavier tablet, or propped up on its own for watching movies. And when completely closed the case protects your iPad’s display from accidental wear and tear while traveling. It’s not slated to ship until next month, but you’re welcome to pre-order one now if you’re so inclined.
