Then imagine picking plastic and make it just as thin.
But laptop makers don't use it that thin, do they?

I have an oldish Dell with an aluminium lid and a plastic base (which makes sense to me, because plastic doesn't conduct so much heat into your lap), but the thickness of the aluminium's obviously been tested to be non-bendy (it hardly moves if I press it).

Dandy's must be a victim of the "waif wars", where marketing morons assumed that people really cared about their laptop being three microns thinner than the one being used by the tasteless idiots who paid half the price for the three-micron thicker one.

The other thing is that when plastic bends, it flexes back.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
