This is urgent.
Is it made of aluminium or plastic. The pictures of the laptop as u can see on the link are gray so it's supposed to be aluminium. But i just recived the laptop (i didnt open it yet) and it sais:
GL752V (without the 'W') and followed by:
*ID+COLOR:1A-BLACK-PLASTIC
What is this supposed to mean? that it's made of plastic instead of aluminium? i bought this version (more expensive) because of the build and the complains about the plastic build.

i just need a quick answer (should i even open the box?)

Ok,
*what would you say? here they sell the metal one http://www.coolmod.com/asus-gl752vw-t4064d-i7-6700hq-gtx-960m-8gb-1tb-173-freedos-portatil-precio?virtuemart_category_id=5 am i right?
*and here http://www.coolmod.com/asus-gl552vw-i5-6300hq-gtx-960m-4gb-1tb-156-freedos-portatil-precio?virtuemart_category_id=12

My problem is that they sent me THIS one, the back plastic fragile one. I don't understand, is this my fault? I bought the one in the 1st link and i have in with me right now but it has the design of the 2nd link.
I sent a message to the company asking what is going on because i they sent me a laptop that doesnt match the picture.
I bought it even though it's more expensive because i can buy a laptop with exactly the same specs but with the plastic design and a 15'' screen instead of a 17'' for only 899 euros and this one costed pretty much 1000 euros. What's your opinion, what would you do in my situation? I wish i could send pictures through here so that everybody could see what i found out.



 


I am not sure I understand your point here? I can read the color of Grey-metal but it's not mentioned anywhere that the chassis is made of aluminium.

It's because there are reviews of the same laptop with that chassis and the veviewers confirm that it is metal on the other hand the other design is made out of plastic.
 


I understand your point of view, but from the informations you gave us, I don't see any mention about the aluminium's casing. If you can provide the informations you mention, we (I) could have a better understanding about the casing.

mm i'll try saying this. the only difference between ASUS GL752VW-T4161T and ASUS GL752VW-T4064D ia the the 2nd one comes without OS (comes with FreeDOS) so it's relativelly cheaper (prife of the windows OS for large companies). Here is a link of the ASUS GL752VW-T4161T (as mentiones includes the OS) but i cant but this one because it uses a french keyboard. The point here are the pictures. They are exactly the same as the ones that the website i bought the laptop from showed.

Also in ASUS's official site clearly states 'With the option of a Gray-Metal or plastic chassis' So it's clearly a choise between metal or plastic.

Sorry to be blunt about this, you said about some reviews that the chassis is metal, the gray-metal could be just a thin sheet of metal on the cover of the screen, giving the appearance of metal. But from what I understand all the chassis of the laptop is made from plastic.
