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?

Old Powerbooks

I don't know - they kind of remind me of old faux-briefcase Powerbooks (eg http://lowendmac.com/1999/lombard-powerbook-g3-bronze-keyboard/), which I thought were lovely. They definitely aren't in line with the currently-fashionable clean, minimalist, modern look, but they were classy in their own way. I don't know how Samsung's have turned out, but I can at least imagine liking them.
