    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    The leather one feels really nice - have you felt them both?

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!

    I would definitely go with the leather because I have a PU :))))
    I also have a leather case on my iPhone and I love it.
    Leather feels nicer when touched and I think it protects the iPad more then the PU

    Leather feels better, but if you're going for a bright color choose the PU.

    Love the instant on/off and really hate having to swipe our older iPads to turn them on...

    If you think about it, $70 for a simple cover is crazy no matter how soft or supple the leather is. I bought the cheaper $40 cover thinking I may one day stop using it like my original Apple Ipad cover.

    On the release date of the IPAD2, I bought the green cover that was around $40.00. After a week, it picked up every finger print and looked very old. I tried cleaning it with no luck. I returned it and bought the red leather cover for $70. Hated paying more but, I am not one to not protect my IPAD. I am happy with the leather cover.

    I have the blue one, but I think I may be changing to the black leather one to match the TPU case from eBay!

    I say leather. The only bad thing is the wear shows up quick. Scratches show horribly.

    Was never a thought for me.
    For my black iPad 2, black leather smart cover all the way.
    I love it.

    Me too!!! Loving my black (leather) smart cover which is why I'm having trouble finding a case. I want (as everyone is well aware of) a book like case; Treegloo, DoDo, but these won't accommodate or special make one to meet my needs. No longer doing my "happy dance."

    Scars and scratches on some types of genuine leather (e.g. aniline, semi-aniline) can usually be repaired - sometimes painstakingly, but it can be done. Also depends on how much wear and tear you subject them to: I've been using leather products for years, and most of my items have minimal scarring.
