Is the aluminum enclosure expensive?
I was wondering if aluminum is expensive to use, and that Apple might switch to something else, like carbon fiber? I don't know — is carbon fiber expensive to use? I recall a news story or off-handed conversation posted somewhere that the reason Apple switched to aluminum in its notebooks was because titanium was expensive. As I read people talking abut how they can get a Dell display with slightly better specs than Apple's at half the price, it makes me wonder if the enclosure is a factor in its cost.
