    SwissGear Lunar ipad/tablet/netbook sleeve, $16.XX from WalMart, with a large zippered compartments works great for me

    I kinda prefer a case where I can leave the tablet in and, use it, as opposed to a pouch type

    I'm putting this on the back (on order, Carbon Fiber) since I already have a scratch:

    Skinomi TechSkin™ for Asus Tablets - Skinomi TechSkin™ for Asus Transformer Prime

    Comes with a screen protector too but I may not use it.

    I'm only going to use the back piece since it's the only part that touches when sitting on a table or countertop etc.

    I'll get a sleeve eventually but I hate to put it in a case full time. I like the feel of it without anything on it and the thickness is one of the reasons I waited for an Android tablet this thin. I'm not going to use it at work or anything. I see getting some sort of case long term but for now I'll go with the Skinomi and a sleeve.

    I think I would rather have velcro to reattach sleeve vice having to snap it in every time I turn from portrait to landscape and visa versa... and I just don't see magnets being strong enough in certain applications... ie in car,

    But thanks for laughing at my choice.

    I am very impressed with the Skinomi product. I only put on the back protector. It came with some skinny side pieces but I didn't install them. I still have not installed the screen protector but it is very nice, high quality and thick. Thicker than the ones you buy in a 3 pack or 10 pack.
    Here are some pictures and it really feels like carbon fiber. It actually gives the back some non-slip properties and no finger prints to be found.

    This shows the true color. I don't know why the above picture is goldish.

    Just ordered the same Skinomi as above because like you, I noticed some light scratches on the backplate and besides , carbon fiber looks good on anything !

    As far as Skinomi's screen protectors, I bought one for my Droid Charge awhile back and wasn't too happy with the finished product, so will probably leave Prime's screen bare.

    Also there's a site called Decalgirl , who I've used in the past, that makes skins just about for any device out there.............very surprised they don't have anything out for the prime yet ! :confused:

    Do you find that the skin interferes with the dock at all? I put a Skinomi cover on the front of the device and it bunches up a little when it goes into the dock. I'm working with them to resize it to avoid that problem and they are being very helpful. I'll report back when things come to a conclusion.

    I don't have a dock:(.
    I have not put on the screensaver yet (I assume that is what is bunching up on yours). Please let us know what they say or do about the issue. Let them know that there are fourm members that have their product and if it is found to be a problem we would like replacements.

    I've been looking for cases for a while and have yet to decide.

    There are some really cool cases similar to roo cases that attach via a plastic device to allow them to spin etc. But I have a real issue with them, as with phone cases that have any hard plastic attachment on them, they will eventually mark your phone/tablet.

    So I would prefer a soft attachment myself. :)

    Been trying to buy a Vipertek slim leather case or one of the many out there that are exactly the same and each time I preorder one, it becomes unavailable just before the release date. Can't understand why they are so hard to stock. The one I have for my Galaxy Tab is fantastic. Hoping it gets handled.

    Has anyone come across a hard case that closes around the prime? I've been wanting to use my prime to take notes at school, but don't want to put it in my back pack with all my books when I don't have a hard case on it.

    I have two different versions of the Vipertek case coming for my Asus Transformer Prime which is also on its way. If I end up keeping the Prime, I will be selling one of them or maybe both if the Prime doesn't function as well as would like...

    So Skinomi emailed me back and I sent them a ton of photos and measurements.
    They said they are redesigning the skin for the screen (which is what I had problems with). I've since taken a spare they sent me to test and put it on the back (with some personal modifications) and I love it.

    So I suggested they modify the back skin as well to make sure it docks just fine and also suggested I'd buy a skin for the base of the keyboard if they made it (the back part, obviously not the keys...).

    If you have an unused skin from Skinomi, you can just use a razor blade to score the skin and then a pair of decent scissors to make the cut along the scored line.

    I'll post back when I hear more.
