Keyboard cases like these are designed for iPad users who don't have the need for the additional power/capabilities of the MacBook but wish to have a tactile keyboard built into a laptop type configuration
Eh? Dont they already make laptops? And isnt it the point of a tablet to not be a laptop?
'They' don't make laptops, but they can turn an iPad into one. :p
Agreed on the point of the tablet, but if one can have the option, 3rd party keyboard manufacturers like Brydge feel they can provide the solution to a problem most of us don't have. For this market to exist, however, there must be enough people who compose a lot of text on their iPads and prefer the option of a physical keyboard when needed.
I suppose, if I were writing papers on my iPad for school, I would invest in a keyboard case such as this one from Brydge or the thin one just released from Logitech.
