I bought one of these for my Mom when I bought her ipad, paid a lot more for it at the Apple store. She decided she preferred the keyboard on the ipad, so I took it. Loved it until our IT guy broke off what he thought was a “stupid piece of plastic” which actually held the ipad in place. So it became trash for my purpose.
Saw these here a few weeks ago, bought the blue one, love it more than the original. The outside of the original was more like material, this one is easier to clean. Our IT guy will not touch it - ever.
