I have this machine I bought it around a week ago. The lid is metal but the base is not. The metal lid isn't really a pro other then the aesthetics - it is cold to touch! The battery life is said to be 5 hours but haven't used it enough to say so far. the charger for this machine is relatively small and light so if you get a decent laptop case you should be able to fit it in
Glad you like it but shame about it not being metal. But I thik lots are like that today - they look it but are actually plastic. What about noise? How quiet is it? I watched a few more youtube videos about it today and every review rated it highly. One had a discussion about it or the XPS 13 with people saying that the XPS was not worth £400 more. I hope you have lots of fun with it. Keep us informed please. I am going to have a further think about buying one.
So it is here. I actually don't think any of it is metal! The lid has a brushed metal effect but I think it's plastic. The rest of the unit is plastic. Still feels nice though and the weight of it is great for me Only annoyance so far is that the hinge on the lid is not very stiff so the screen can wobble a little bit if not used on a desk Not had it on enough to comment on battery life! Most of the time it has been on has been processing windows updates
I've watched a few reviews of it on youtube and they contradict one anoher about it being all aluminium or just the lid. Ha ha - they can't even get that basic thing right.
