The new XPS Gen 2...

Dell seems to use two materials in the design of the XPS Gen 2, which will just be referred to as the XPS G2 from hereon out. The black casing for the monitor, hinges, upper half of black trim of the system, and the silver inlay of the notebook all are polycarbonate. The plate on the backside of the display is just a solid piece of aluminum. It has been buffed so that it looks like it has ridges, but it has a simple smooth surface. The "XPS" letters on the back side of the display are just clear plastic inserts. The bottom half of the notebook is just exposed aluminum sprayed with an enamel black coat of paint.

The XPS G2 uses a simple sliding clip on the front side to unsecure the display lid.
