    It's not cheap plastic, it's the same hinge only it's white.

    It's coated in some material...like the inside of the iBook keyboard/mouse trackpad.

    It's not any differnet or cheaper.

    The new ibooks have a completely white acrylic case (not clear over white) and a white inside where ever things used to be silver.

    Yeah, I noticed this too, I don't know if the older ibooks feels cheap too, but I tried out the 12" ibook in the store and it felt plasticky.
