    The top is described as metalloid aluminium, but I have no idea what that means. Feels kind of aluminiumy. By the bottom, maybe they mean the touchpad / palmrest area? That part is definitely plastic on the inside, not sure what the outside is. The case is basically plastic.

    Hi, do you guys also have the vibrations on the left of the palmrest, where the HDD is located? I think it's annoying.. Or is this normal?

    SO, I just got my XPS 15 yesterday. I was using it today, then suddenly it turns off by itself. The power cord's adapter went out. I tried a different outlet, and the blue light on the power cord went back on. I then plugged it back into the XPS and the light went out. It won't turn on at all. Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?

    Ordered mine on the 15th at night, picked it up from the post office this morning. Super fast service, immediate virus.

    I Have the ST9500420AS HDD in my new dell xps L502x. I read some things about the vibration of this specific HDD. What HDD do you guys have? WD? Are you feeling vibrations?
