Out of the millions of things Samsung throws at a wall each year to see what sticks, they seem to have picked the fake leather on devices. The most recent victim? A Windows 8 laptop - the ATIV Book 9 'Style'. This thing joins the phones, tablets, and ChromeBooks Samsung has already tacked the fake leather onto.

Genuine question: is there anyone in the audience here who likes this look? If so, why?

It looks like plastic, it feels like plastic

No it looks and feels like leather. It's not just a pattern. It's basically the same sort of fake leather you find on a cheap briefcase, they've glued it to the top of the laptops shell.
