PRS-505: Metal or plastic case?

Down to the Sony or the BeBook.

This is going to seem a dumb question, but: Is the Sony Reader's case actually metal? Or is is just plastic made to look like metal?

Sony's case is extruded aluminium. It's pretty robust.

The top and bottom bits are plastic though. so it's fairer to say that it's mostly metal.

LOL sorry but it just reminds me of Princess Bride.

"He's not dead. He's mostly dead."

"Bye Bye boys! Have fun storming the castle!"
"You think they have a chance?"
"It would be a miracle!"
