:eek:

I know that I want a smart cover, I can't decide which one to get. The green polyurethane?



or maybe a black leather one?

What did you order?

I got the green one last year with my iPad 2 and regretted it after a few months as it was getting dirty very easily so I got the black leather one to replace it and it's perfect! I would defiantly recommend that one.

The Apple store makes mention that the colour of the leather cases might rub off. Has anybody experienced this? I’d like to get a RED case for my white iPad, but don’t want to end up with pink smears on my shiny new gadget. :eek:

I have the grey one, because that was all I could find in stores back when the iPad 2 had just been released. I really want to get a red one now, but the price is hard to justify.

I ordered the navy leather for the white iPad. Clear Belkin shell on the back side when they come out.

I had an orange poly cover on my iPad 2, and I liked it. Stayed fairly clean. I kept it and will use it when I get my new iPad. I also ordered a tan leather Smart Cover from eBay and am expecting it tomorrow or Monday.

I had red leather on my white ipad2 for a year, not one single problem. You will love it. Only thing is, say if you get a wet droplet speck on it, don't rub it, it will smear on the leather and make it look worse. just let it naturally air dry. Don't try to clean it by rubbing it either. Just let it be natural. The leather ones, Red and Black are the nicest imo.

I ordered the Light Blue Polyurethane..

I think it works best with the white iPad.

I had the blue one, and was unimpressed. If you really like baby blue, then it's good. I'm going with black on white iPad, leather this time around. Less dirt, hopefully!

Save a cow, get the polyurethane. It saves you money too and will probably hold up better.

That’s sound advice. Thank you Sir!

When iPad 2 first launched I bought the poly blue, and then a few weeks later the black leather....I dont like the way the black leather held up. The texture feels different, and it shows scuffs in the leather easily. A few weeks ago I bought the 'new' gray poly, I like the way it looks and feels so far.

I current have a white iPad 2 with grey, red and green(the new version)

I would say leather is definitely better than the poly one, and the red+white is the best combination.

I just got a new black iPad, and planning to buy a navy cover.
