    Suppose you had an iPad 2 and were getting a free Smart Cover. Which material and color would you pick?

    If I HAD to get one... black leather

    But I am really not of fan of it
    I will look for a 3rd party case more like the original

    Navy leather. Orange polyurethane for changing up.

    I thought you weren't upgrading. :D

    But if I did...

    Polyurethane: Gray, but leather black is an option as well given that black is my favorite color.

    I'm undecided. I'm fine with polyurethane as the material but the polyurethane colors are a little too bright. Perhaps gray, since the other colors don't seem very sophisticated, and of course I expect people to judge my level of sophistication by the color of my iPad 2 cover.

    Lies. You said…I will look for a 3rd party case more like the original. Not would, will. :D

    I have already judged you based on the thread you started :p

    I voted black despite my favourite colour being grey. (There is a distinct lack of u's in the title :p).

    The grey just looks a little too pale for my liking.

    There are as many u's in the title as in your user name, which makes both sufficient. Of course in pure American English it would be "yer" instead of "your".

    I thought you were color blind. :confused:

    Yup, but that means I see colors inaccurately, not that I don't see colors. I tend to prefer blue or yellow better than green, orange, or red, since the former are colors I'm more likely to identify correctly.

    Since I'm never sure of colors I looked at the words in the Apple Store to figure out what the color choices were called. Sometimes when I'm shopping online I look at image files names, like "jacket-navy.jpg", to be sure what the color is.

    It appears that I'll have to pay more for leather, just to get a dark color. I'm also asking about this because I buy gifts for people and I wouldn't want to buy a cover for a family member if you guys say it's icky looking.

    If you buy leather the four-footed polyurethanes in the pasture are probably relieved that they won't have to be skinned!

    I would go with polyurethane (boycotted leather a long time ago) in either blue or orange if I were to get the iPad. Although I'd probably get one of the other cases before I got the Smart Cover.

    Leather ones are so damn expensive. Black for Leather and Blue for polyurethane.

    No-brainer for me: ORANGE all the way, baby!!!! :)

    +1! I love orange. Mine never leaves the house so it won't be a magnet for theft... lol

    The white iPad and red cover look incredible together.

    Boy won't it suck if it actually gets stolen right from your house :D

    Leather navi is my fav (paired with the black iPad 2). But since I think the $69 price is ridiculous, I would probably get the green/orange polyurethane cover (and a white iPad 2 instead of black).

    I'm in pretty much the same boat. Color blindness usually does not mean an inability to see color at all, rather that certain shades of color are more difficult to distinguish than others. As an example I originally thought the navy leather was a dark grey. Once I saw it labeled as navy it was easier for me to see it as such.


    I selected Navy-Leather in the poll, but am increasingly leaning towards black leather.

    White + Red looks amazing to me. Going to be what I end up buying.

    I wish there was a really rich dark brown leather Smart Cover option.
