    honestly that looks really cool. The magnets don't look that bad--if you're really desperate to have a smartcase on your ipad 1.....that's not a bad way to go. just be careful with the superglue, lol

    I like the design, the only thing I don't like is that it is a bit slippery without the case...but it makes it lighter and sexier....big problem of course as was mentioned, the cheaper option only comes in ugly colors and black is only available in the pricier leather option...but I would probably get leather anyway.

    The obvious reasoning that the "kids" colors, (light blue, bright green, and....pink....) would be poly--is to force us to buy the good colors in leather. It's ridiculous. Apple could make poly in any color it wants. It disgusts me.

    Ditto. Gluing or taping stuff onto a $600 or an $800 device like the iPad (or any other expensive tech device) in order to achieve mediocre results is just janky.

    It's been a long time since this 54 year old grandma has been called a kid, but I ordered the pink one......because it's what I liked! Nothing to do with the price.

    My apologies :) My point was that the more muted, less flashy colors are only available in leather when they should be made available in poly as well. I hope you enjoy your pink case--it's not a bad choice by any means.

    But my point is why pick on Apple's Smart Case? Most every electronic device or accesory you buy is cheaply manufactured overseas. That's why they're made overseas. A product's price has little to do with the cost of manufacturing and everything to do with what the market will bear. My local Apple Store is sold out of leather smart cases, enough said. No one's forced to buy anything they don't want.

    I totally agree. Apple already knows that the professionals will head for the more corporate friendly colors which only come in leather. I couldn't imagine myself going into a meeting with a bright orange smart cover. However when I was apart of the younger set I was very attracted to bright pink and white. It is also more appropriately priced at 39.00 for that population to obtain. That's not to say that the older crowd couldn't enjoy the bright colors also. Even though would not take the orange to a business meeting I probably would use it or any of the other colors on a Saturday afternoon to accessorize an outfit.
