    They had both versions, and many colors, at a Best Buy near me. Honestly, I was all set to buy the leather before I held both in my hands. For me, not worth it.

    Both are overpriced but I bought the navy leather and very glad I did. Did not like the colors in poly.

    I ended up getting a cream leather....While both are over priced....The leather feels much nicer.

    I agree, I looked at the poly ones and the only one that I MIGHT of liked was the grey one. I ended up getting the black leather, nicer feel, nicer look.

    Got navy leather. The poly looked cheesy.

    Grey poly.. $69.99 is rediculous for a flap. $39.99 is too much for the poly as well, but I needed something for protection.

    I got the grey poly. I wished they had leather when I got my iPad. Almost bought the black one today.

    I bought the green poly, and kinda wish I waited and got the navy leather when it came in locally. But now I'm going to wait for the 3rd party cases/covers to come out.

    Apple gave me a navy blue leather cover as a courtesy per an error on their part. I was originally hesitant about trying out the cover, thinking I might just take it in and exchange it for something else. Turns out I like it a lot. Nice look, good feel and is a good utility (for me, a great typing angle, which is what I need the most). Not bad at all.

    I looked at both the poly and leather versions. The leather felt great, but also felt just a little heavier and I wanted no extra weight. I didn't test it, but I wonder if the leather versions stay attached as well when opened onto the back side. Someone should test the magnetic hold differences, if there are any. I ended up with the gray poly...love it!
