Keeping your iPad’s screen scratch free during travel was a simple as investing in a smart cover.  But what about the back of the tablet device?  Last week, in addition to new a new Retina Macbook Pro and Macbook Airs, they introduced the iPad Smart Case.

Like the Smart Cover, lift its lid and the iPad will automatically wake up.  Close it and it will fall asleep.  And now if you place the iPad’s back onto an abrasive surface, its aluminum facade will remain intact as if were brand new thanks to a Polyurethane finish.   And because it’s made of Polyurethane it really shouldn’t add any bulk or weight to the tablet’s svelte design.  The Apple iPad Smart Case comes in six “vibrant” colors and includes a matching microfiber for polishing the screen for $49. And if you so choose you can have it engraved to match your iPad for free.
