I had a question at the apple store about the iPad dock. I just wanted to know if the keyboard dock had more support than the regular dock for the ipad. The service people had no clue about it. The regular one liked to tilt side-to-side too easily. I would much rather buy the dock along with the apple bluetooth keyboard than have to get stuck with a keyboard that only works for one thing, but that tilting worries me. Anyone have experience with the regular dock? How sturdy is yours when the ipad is on it?

Seems to be sturdy enough. The iPad is still usable while sitting in the dock. Played a round of hold-em on it and some mahjong. Reading a book is a non-issue while in the dock.

It does go to rocking a little if you're tapping it instead of touching it. While it's not nearly as stable as any LCD, it'll take more than any normal use to actually get it to fall over.

For anyone planning on using the Apple case, don't bother with the dock. Not gonna work. Probably not with the keyboard dock either, and it's not the easiest thing to get off.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Lol. Too true. I tired to take it off last night just to wipe the screen off, but it bested me for a good 5 minutes before I gave up.
