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 have no love for Samsung hardware but this is not too bad. At least it’s a different approach than the usual macbook air clone look. I think the faux-leather look works better on the phones than the laptop, but it’s subtle enough to not be too hideous.
