    Other than the ASUS Z70va, what other notebooks out there use carbon fiber or some other high quality material? The Z70va's are basically sold out everywhere, so I have to start my search over and I want to stay away from notebooks that have plastic cases (silly, I know, but I almost bought a Powerbook just for the heavy duty aluminum case).

    Oh, and does anyone know if the Z70va case is used for any OEM models?

    keep in mind that in many cases, it's not all carbon fiber, but just on several key areas, such as lid, or the bottom, etc.

    off the top of my head

    Asus W1 uses Aluminum in several areas
    Asus W3v and Z63 has carbon fiber, aluminum touch pad
    Asus W2v carbon fiber
    Asus W5a carbon fiber
    MSI 1029, magnesium on bottom
    MSI 510c magnesium lid
    Fujitsu S series magnesium
    IBM X, T series, Titanium alloy
