    Do not understand the concern for scratching the back so I really like the cover. It travels in my briefcase anyway so I can not find a reason for a sleeve.

    Resale value. Besides, many of us like to really take care of our expensive toys so they continue to look nice. 

    I think its pretty cool but way way over priced. Honestly the way apple was talking I though it was going to be free. If it were maybe $10 bucks. But $40 is out of control if you ask me.

    My thoughts exactly. I would've paid $20 top for it.

    Honestly, I think the poly should be $19.99 and the leather $29.99. I agree that the current prices are a little bit too much. They'll eventually come down, but not for quite a while. You have to expect any hot new technology is going to be big bucks to start with. Either way, it's nothing to me because Apple gave me my blue leather one for free as a courtesy per an error on their part.

    I don't believe that Apple will ever drop the price of the smart covers. What I think will happen is other manufactures will start to market a generic version in colorful patterns and materials at a lower rate.

    Doesn't "skinning" or otherwise covering up the back insulate the aluminum (?) back and defeat its heat exchange purpose? Is this also perhaps a main reason the new covers don't cover the back?

    Imagine a laptop... who would "skin" one... they'd certainly overheat. An iPad doesn't even have a fan, so I'm guessing it really needs some serious surface area to conduct heat away.

    I haven't come across any discussions about this (is it described in a user's guide re: the proper care and feeding of the iPad?). I wince viewing pictures of iPads with sticky plastic coverings. I could be wrong, but that sure seems like a big mistake -- or at least one that is causing more harm than any protective good.

    I think the Smart Cover is an amazing accessory for the iPad 2. It has a beautiful design and comes in many vibrant colours. However, the Smart Cover does not protect the back of the iPad, leaves 3 vertical marks on the iPad screen, and the case actually becomes very dirty and can be hard to clean.

    I have had a skin on the back for about a week now. I've never felt any warmth from the iPad, before or after the skin. And it's in use many hours a day, several hours at a time.
