    Other then the obvious, is there any difference between the leather and poly smart covers? Are the leather ones lighter? The poly ones are girly looking and only leather ones are offered in the darker colors.

    they look and feel the same and I prefer "happy colours"'. And I think the leather ones are way too overpriced. I have the blue polyurethane cover. Ofcourse, it would be nice to have dark gray or black polyurethan cover, but I will not pay nearly twice the price just for colour and to know myself, that I have leather cover. from feet away they look exactly the same. Black andw greean or black and blue. go together very nice and it does not look childish or girlish. On the macstories webpage they describe the smartcover very good: the main difference is, that polyurethane cover has a strong, firm quality to it that is smooth on the hands. If you want to save 30 usd you cant go wrong with polyurethane cover.

    My iPad came with the black leather cover as a gift from the wife. Awesome, really durable been through some rough scraping against bare aluminum and throw in and out my work bag several times a day, and still looks as new as I got it on fathers day. I just picked up the back cover from Tucano Find here the best selection of laptop messenger bags

    I have just purchased an official Apple black leather smart cover of eBay for £34.99, so there are some bargains out there :)

    Leather one here is standing up well under hard usage. Impressed with it's durability.

    Big difference besides price

    The leather cover stains easily and it is impossible to clean it well even with the best leather care products. Save your money and get the vinyl cover.

    My color choice would be the blue one for the poly cover, but my wife has it. I don't like the others, so I might get a leather one just to get a better color, but I hate to spend that much just for a cover.

    Some of the after market (not Apple) leather covers are good. I use my iPad for presentations to customers and did not want the colorful vinyl covers. I really like the Bear Motion cover. It looks professional and available on Amazon for about $39.00.
