If you use your iPad as a virtual laptop and want a real keyboard you can take anywhere without adding a lot of bulk, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard gets the job done, and lives up to its name. Because it really is ultrathin, though, this case/keyboard combo doesn't provide a lot of protection for the iPad, and some people may find the keyboard somewhat cramped. If you're in that camp, you may want to consider the slightly heavier, more protective, ZAGGFolio. Either option beats trying to roll your own with a separate Bluetooth keyboard and iPad case.
