Excerpt: Manufacturers would prefer to regularly pillage your wallet by selling you a screen for every situation — but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover ($80+) can transform your favorite Apple tablet into a laptop-rivaling email burner — and spare you the hassle of lugging a Smart Cover too, since it doubles as a magnetic cover.
Conclusion: The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is another great iPad-product from Logitech. It combines the need for a good keyboard with the need for a slim cover perfectly. With a price around $99 it is not cheap but well worth the money considering what you get.
