    You might not like it but that's not how you talk about some one's "creative" effort...
    Here's a black one for you

    Well, it's noon on Sunday at ED's place. He may have said he'd be assembling the production prototypes over the weekend, but patience is still a virtue.

    Look, I won't even ping him this time.

    @JDTAY You are aware, that for ED the weekend ends on Monday morning? ;)

    Actually, I believe he said "over the weekends" ;-)

    I hope ED isn't losing sleep over this. ClockworkCoder is right, he did say weekends.

    Hey, I didn't meant any offense to your efforts. It was just that combination of red and silver, plastic and aluminium doesn't look very good. May be it's just me.
    However the black one looked better, but I still like pure plastic or pure aluminium better.

    Do you literally sleep in your office? I used to work for someone who did that...

    Wow, so ED only got five hours of dragon sleep? How much is that in human sleep?

    Nope, I'm doing the assembly and mods at home :)

    BTW: The first round of case material samples has also arrived today, so I guess I need to make a video as well (AND upload the pictures from the assembly here...)

    But first, I need to ship out all orders :)
    Thanks to my trainee, we should be done with that within a few hours.

    @JDTAY Going from a dragon nap usually taking 500 years that maps to almost 25 µs for a human, which is used to sleep 6 h.

    (that should have spelled ms)

    (Is there no strike through formatting?)

    Well, I assume that if ED is shipping the production prototypes, they all tested out well.

    How much longer until ED pushes the big red production starting button? I guess a little more case work is needed?

    I think he means shipping orders from the shop.

    Some high-end Thinkpad had MgCast (magnesium alloy, really aluminum with magnesium) lids. And it was better than plastic. I haven't seen better material for that purpose (Thinkpad down base could be carbon fiber).

    On other side it can be a good solution to cover aluminum edges with rubber (easier to fabricate than plastic, or even standard rubber with custom cut).

    There are high-end aluminum smartphones by millions and millions, and their wireless coms work without magic :)

    A solution is simply: you left a very thin window for radio signals and cover it with rubber. Lots of aluminum phones had this solution.

    Other solution is to add rubber pieces on aluminum edges, in this way you get shock protection and a way for radio signals, even better grip and even they can work as surface contact when using in a table.
