    Well if I told you I'm putting fabric on a premium expensive laptop it may sound a bit daunting. I have no doubt it will last under care, it just seems scary to approach.

    hey kashgohel. my older macbook pro from 2006 started to get marks where the palm rests where and it was rather ugly to look at. fabric is an interesting design choice and although i can see concern for a fabric replacing metal or plastic, people who do know about alcantara seem to praise it. i dont have access to alcantara so im curious: what does it feel like? is it stiff? cushiony? do the fibers get itchy?
    Hey k1a23, alcantara just looks like those silicon moulds for cooking or flexible mugs. Very smooth, slightly soft but if you look closer you'll see these microscopic hairs on it. Its like velvet-ish that has been stamped flat with a hot iron.

    Hopefully all those unorthodox descriptions help you out! :P

    Yeah, that works too. Microsoft should hire us for their marketing department!
