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?

I'd have to see this and feel it in real life to make a judgement about this specific device. But in general I like a bit of texture, rather than slippery-smooth surfaces. I'd especially appreciate a rubberized 'grippy' surface.
