When held incorrectly, your iPad can be a serious pain in the neck — literally. But with the right accessories, you can avoid a repetitive stress injury. Here are our picks for tablet cases and stands that offer the best options for achieving comfortable, ergonomically sound viewing angles for most any situation.
For Typing: Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard
There are oodles of keyboard options for tablets, and while many prefer to use a stand-alone version in concert with a separate stand, we're big fans of Logitech's $100 line of Ultrathin Keyboard Covers. Functioning much like Apples Smart Covers, a magnetic hinge attaches the keyboard to cover the display when not in use. When you want to type, swing it open and pull to detach the hinge and then slide your iPad into the holder slot (either vertically or horizontally), which props your pad at a comfortable 60-degree angle. Battery life is measured in months, and we quickly got used to using shortcut keys for cut and paste and a home button. And yet, the whole shebang weighs less than 12 ounces and is only a third of an inch thick.
