Sometimes, you buy an iPad case because it offers good protection. Maybe you'll buy one because it looks good. Other times, you buy it because it comes with extra features you want. The Padintosh leaps over all of those reasons: you'll buy it because it's ridiculously awesome.
Made by Thumbs Up World, it's an iPad case that resembles the front panel of the classic Macintosh from 1984. All the familiar elements are integrated -- off-whitish color, a floppy drive and a whole lot of character as only the Apple of that era can deliver. It's not a 1:1 reproduction (the screen on the original Macintosh, for instance, was just 9 inches -- smaller than the iPad's), but it will do.
More novelty than a useful accessory, the actual Padintosh case is about twice the size of the iPad 2, giving you plenty of material to grab on to while playing Atari games on your tablet. It doesn't really make it easier to transport your iPad, browse on your iPad or do anything with your iPad, but we still bet this thing will fly off shelves as soon as they hit. Oh yeah, you can stand the entire thing on a wall, so it looks like you've got a real 80s-era Macintosh (just add a keyboard at the bottom for more realism). Compatible with the Smart Cover, too.
The Padintosh for iPad 2 is currently on preorder from Firebox. Price is £19.99.
