The $129 iLuv Professional Case with Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad 2 doesn't have a name that rings off the tongue, but it's a solidly built leather folio. Unfolded in a keyboard orientation, it actually looks in passing like a laptop...a leather laptop. The flat keyboard has solidly clicking keys that feel like those on Gateway and Acer laptops, although key size is compressed as on smaller Netbooks.

The iLuv case is propped up by a fold-down strut that snaps against the back when not in use.

When folded up, the iLuv case does have a professional look, but it's far thicker than any other case we've seen.

A unique feature of iLuv's keyboard case: the keyboard attaches and detaches via Velcro, letting you use the keyboard and case as standalone peripherals.

Without the keyboard insert, the case is significantly thinner.
