Guys, while the smart keyboard is a light & solid performer, if you are willing to pay $50 more for a much better protection + better keyboard (lights + function keys + touchpad) then I would highly recommend Logitech Combo Touch for iPad Air / iPad 7th gen. I just picked one up for my iPad 10.5 Pro 1st gen, & I am very happy. The only negative is its weight, but that can be mitigated because when not typing, it can also be detached from Keyboard dock, so you can use it as a case / stand.

I checked it out, and wow, you were right. It looks bad ass. I'm gonna get that instead.

Thanks.

Have to counter this. I found it too clunky and heavy. I returned it and am looking for an alternative that has both protection and a keyboard (the Apple Smart Keyboard does not protect the device). However, I must say that Logitech keyboards are amazing. I really liked the feel of the keys. But the overall weight was a non-starter. And, the iPad case when separated from the keyboard just felt.. weird.

FWIW, I have a similar Logitech combo case on my 9.7 iPad Pro ("Logitech Create blah blah blah") and the weight/utility tradeoff is one I've had to make there as well, but I stuck with it. To each their own.
