    People actually think that it is "Glass" like a window on your car, but it isn't

    It's "Plexi Glass" which the average person would call "Shiny Smooth Plastic"

    It's not going to be as fragile as a vase, if you dropped or hit the notebook hard enough to break the trackpad, you would have f'ed up the machine regardless of the glass trackpad

    Do you have an iPhone? ever used one?

    They market the iPhone as a glass screen, which it is,a plexi glass screen.

    I have a touch, its optical quality glass

    plexy glass is in actuality a type of plastic. I also beleive its not conductive. Therefor the iphone/ipod/touchpad isnt plexyglass.

    Yes, I have an iPhone - and its screen is GLASS, not plastic.
    BTW - Plexiglas is a TRADEMARK for a kind of acrylic plastic - it is NOT glass!!

    How hard is it for you to understand? Glass ≠Plastic, and the screens of iPhones are made of glass. Not plastic. Got it?

    You are incorrect. It is glass. Glass, as in window glass. Silica. Not plastic.

    "Plexiglass" is not glass, it's just a term for plastic.

    You'll need a lot of that stuff!

    Its glass alright and the same stuff as iPhone which does break easily. Besides capacitance works better on glass and static only works on glass!

    Unless you drop the laptop, I highly doubt it will crack. And if it does drop, like any laptop, you risk breaking the laptop itself, so I doubt the glass would be the first thing you make a thread about.

    You would assume the same thing to be true with iPod Touch and iPhones... cause they're made to be fairly tough, yet careless users seems to break them too!! Don't ask me how, though...
