    Airbender is perfect for the Boardroom or any iPad-using professional on-the-go. First, I should mention that I had one of the earliest version of this iPad cover which had one fatal flaw: the clasp broke and after that the clamshell would never stay shut. That issue seems to be fixed with this version of the Airbender, but at the cost of a few features I enjoyed in the previous version. Bottom line: This version does seem improved and worth the money if you travel, your iPad needs protection, and/or you want easy keyboarding.Shared attributes between old and new cases: Plastic.
