The friction hinge is sturdy and flexible, twisting readily into whatever angle you'd like.

The case is thick, and will add quite a bit of girth to the otherwise solid iPad Air.

The Typo lacks backlit keys, but if its price were inline with similarly equipped competitors it would be less expensive.
