It’s hideous. It looks like a child’s tablet.
Ummm, I guess?




I haven’t used an iPad in years. Are keyboards worth it? I don’t notice many people with keyboards and iPads.
For any serious typing, I still use the desktop Magic Keyboard with my iPad. It's light and packs easily in a bag. While the latest MBA and MBP say its a Magic Keyboard, I still like the key action of the desktop version over those. I had various version of keyboard cases with my 10.5" and aesthetically they looked nice but functionally they lacked.

I am glad to have the Logitech one. It makes typing so much easier instead of having a greasy screen and being able to see the full real estate of it. ;)

Because in the long run, if they have a laptop and they need to be productive, they prefer to write using a serious keyboard. These Bluetooth keyboards sometimes work fairly, sometimes, especially if you have other Bluetooth devices connected, they annoyingly lag, sometimes they need you to reset the connection. I believe the story is different with a keyboard using the smart connector.
