    I looked at both the smart cover and smart case today at the Apple store. It was really hard for me to hand guess that their weight was very different. The material and magnets of the smart cover gave it a heavier than expect feel. I can't find online the exact weights of either item. Does anyone know this information?

    I have no idea, but would love to know as well.

    I don't have a Smart Case, but just weighed my Smart Cover on my digital food scales and it weighs 102 grams. Maybe someone else here can weigh their Smart Case to compare.
