Testing a New Rig

I’m currently testing out the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case with Trackpad on my iPad Air 3.

Early first impressions, the keyboard is nice and I really like the backlit keys. So far I think I prefer this over the Apple Smart Keyboard that I have used for almost three years.

The trackpad seems to handle any iOS gesture I throw at it. Really makes working on the iPad Air a touch free experience if I want it to be.

This is a heavy, heavy device. The iPad cover combined with the keyboard seems to double the weight of the iPad Air alone. (Don’t at me please – I said “seems to”). But the convenience of the kickstand, the functionality of the keyboard and trackpad gesture support may just make the weight increase worth the effort. Only time will tell about that.

Overall, I would say that I am pleased with this addition to my favorite productivity device. My youngest daughter put it best when she said that the Combo Touch “makes the iPad into a Chromebook except it’s better than a Chromebook because it’s a great tablet too”. I could not have said it better myself.
