    The major fail is in the headline (and possibly CM marketing).
    It's neither leather nor luxury...

  • battcomp
    real leather wouldn't last and saying leather feel of luxury is old marketing over price keyboards are getting out of hand
  • jabliese
    Apparently Battcomp, you have never had anything that was real leather. And you won't find it here either.
