If you want to use your iPad as a pseudo laptop and are looking for an elegant docking option, the official Apple iPad Keyboard Dock is what you want. Design-wise, it's exactly like the existing Apple bluetooth aluminum keyboard, only with an iPad docking station attached. Functionality-wise, they added a sweet little 'home' button, which conveniently takes you to the home screen without messing with your iPad's home button. There's also the usual brightness and volume controls, plus a way to invoke the on-screen keyboard so you don't have to repeatedly fumble around on the iPad's screen except when necessary.
I'm a huge fan of the flexi-keyboard thing as well. This one is freakin' waterproof too, in case you're anything like me (aka a disaster waiting to happen) and can't be trusted with things like hot coffee/soda. It's also great for taking out your frustrations on, you can kick, slap, and stomp on it to your heart's desire (and it won't hit back). Enjoy!
The new Zaggmate aluminum case with the keyboard inside is a really cool case + keyboard option. It's made out of some crazy military-grade metal which allows it to be really thin and light, but still strong. It adds only 1/4 inch to the iPad's thickness when it's closed. You can get it at Best Buy.
I use my iPad for work a lot, so I got the Kensington KeyFolio leather case with built-in bluetooth keyboard. It's It's great because when it's expanded, the small keyboard conveniently folds out so I can type during meetings or while in a cafe. When I'm on the go, I just folded it up and it looks like a professional leather day planner.
You can use Apple’s own wireless Bluetooth keyboard with your iPad, which I highly recommend. The slim form factor is extremely portable, visually attractive, and best of all, you'll be able to use it with any of your other Apple devices.
I think the Flexible Bluetooth/Wireless Keyboard for the iPad is awesome! It's a flexible miniature QWERTY keyboard that easily connects to your iPad and can be rolled up to fit anywhere!
