These guys have created a great niche in the case market. It's an anarchism for such a classic style book cover containing modern technology but it works!

They lost me at the leather frame covering the bezel part. If they used a more elegant plastic frame where the iPad could snap in, it would perform and look much better.

I've always found these type of cases to interfere with using the tablet. Especially with iOS where swiping in from the screen edges performs various functions.

Glad I'm not the only one who absolutely can't stand stuff like this. It doesn't look good and makes using the tablet worse.

The SurfacePad looks rather nice, but I'm not sure I'm willing to fork out $80 for one. I can get an Apple one that does mostly the same thing for $50.

Am I the only one who thinks the naming for these things are terrible?
