The TC4200...

The display seems to be cased in polycarbonate, while the bottom of the system (minus the access panels) is just the exposed aluminum frame with a coat of black epoxy paint. However, the access panels and front bezel seem to be made of ABS plastic, and the wrist rest feels like it is made of carbon fiber. The aluminum exterior of the system will obviously be able to tolerate scratches more so than the rest of the system.

Opening the notebook is simple - pushing the center release button releases the single security clip holding down the display lid.
