If you want a desktop then why not just go buy one, rather than purchase a case that will make your IPad look like one. I know there are also the cases which will turn your IPad into a netbook, and there are many options to go with, however it just seems to be an accessory that is not very necessary. This case turns your IPad into what looks very much like a Dell desktop monitor with the speaker attachment. It does make sense if you will be using a bluetooth keyboard and willing to remove your IPad from the case whenever you go out. I personally find if you are willing to turn your IPad into a desktop when it is meant for portability, then go ahead and purchase this case. This case can be yours for $99.
