Beautiful Aluminum Keyboard Case Transforms Your iPad 2 into MacBook Air Clone

By  |  12 Comments

Adding a keyboard to your iPad is an easy way to increase your productivity. Carrying around a dedicated keyboard takes away from the portability of your iPad 2, but a super slim and sexy looking keyboard case can deliver faster typing and good looks.

The MIC Aluminum Keyboard case transforms your iPad 2 into a MacBook Air clone.

The MIC Aluminum Keyboard Buddy Case for iPad 2 delivers on all of these fronts, turning your iPad 2 into a smaller MacBook Air body double for $50 — $20 less than what you’d pay for an Apple wireless keyboard.

iPad keyboard cases are nothing new, but the MIC keyboard case stands out for more than the MacBook Air looks. Compared to the current crop of iPad 2 keyboard cases like the ZaggMate keyboard case, it is also 50% cheaper.

If you want to turn your iPad 2 into a beautiful productivity driven machine, this may be the case for you. In addition to delivering faster typing, cases like this are attractive because it leaves more of the screen visible while you work and props the screen at just the right angle for typing.

Here at GottaBeMobile we spent the weekend drooling over the looks of this case. Don’t be surprised if you see one of us carrying this case around soon.

    this product sucks. it is essentially only a tray to sit your ipad in. It does not snap onto you ipad so that it will protect the screen while your ipad is in your bag. Aslo it is very light and can only support the ipads weight on a flat hard surface.

      You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. It does snap together quite nicely and my ipad stays quite secure. Yes it is very light, but I haven’t had a problem using it. No, you shouldn’t try to use this in your lap, but I would say that using any small netbook in your lap would be a pain in the ass. Overall this product is brilliant. I have loved typing every second on this and wouldn’t give it back for twice what I paid for it.

     This looks like a counterfeit of uPlay (TM) wireless keyboard and aluminum case, which is designed in California. Actually it looks like their first generation product. Their second generation is way better than the first generation.
