Hang-the-nine, they didn't specify what type of leather it was in the first place. Brings new meaning to getting a new "skin" for your laptop. Tis the season, right?
Honestly, I kinda like it. I already have a leather (faux) jacket/keyboard for my tablet and this seems like an enhanced version of that. The battery life, if real, is more than substantial enough for me. The size and weight and the OS could be deal breakers for me.
