How will you carry your iPad around? Man-purse?
I'm wondering how you, mostly men, carry your iPad around? Have you found a sling bag? I'm not fond of the man-purse, so I'm trying to figure out what I would use to carry it.
Thanks for any ideas or links.

I just carry it in the Apple case. Works just carrying like carrying portfolio with notepad. If I need both hands for a moment, I just throw it under my arm and hold it there. With this device, I don't want to put it in a bag or something that I have to open, get it out, and then use it. I like being able to open the flap, press home, slide to unlock and ready to go.

It obviously depends on what kind of look you are going for, but again, I have a backpack type bag from Timbuk2, and I also have a messenger bag from them as well. They are practically indestructible and you can design your own bag. Oh, and no, I do not work for them, I'm just a fan.

Well, considering I'm a female, I can just put a case on it and slide it into my purse.
Or, put a case on it and carry it around like, well, a book/notebook/legal pad case kinda thing.
I'm also planning on sewing my own case for it, so I can add pen slots, business card slots, pockets and such in there. I might be able to rig something up so that it functions kind of like an oddly shaped purse and carries my credit cards, DL, lipstick, etc. I dunno, I need to get my hands on one and get in there to design something before I really know how it's going to work for me. I am worried about things in the pockets scratching the screen somehow...so I'll need to figure that part out.

I carry it down my pants like the dude at the award show LOL
I'll be carrying it in my incase laptop knapsack. I carry it everyday with my laptop and lunch. Once I get the iPad my laptop will be staying chained to my desk so I will slide it into the spot in my bag. Anywhere else I'll be driving so it will be sitting on my passenger seat in it's case/sleeve.

I've taken to using a small bag (I forget what they're called) with tie strings for straps. I'd actually prefer a smaller one speficially for that purpose, but for bike riding, in general, that extra space comes in a handy.
People talk sometimes (no one in THIS thread) as if the iPad is HUGE and heavy. Maybe it is, when compared to the Kindle, but it's not so bad.

I've been surfing for 2 days now. I'm thinking of a horizontal sling messenger bag, but one that is only slightly bigger than the iPad. I don't really like the vertical bags, as they seem too similar to a purse. I already bought the Apple Case, which I haven't opened yet.
If anyone sees a nice bag like that, I would love to check it out.

So another question comes to mind, with the guy who lost a finger when buying his iPad and so many carrying it in hand or in a sleeve under your arm aren't you afraid someone will run past you and yank it out of your hand/arm? They should come with a 4,000 volt shock case so when someone grabs it and runs off you can activate it and teach them a small lesson
