It does, however, the cheap plastics they used are a pretty big turnoff for me.

When I have time to get back to it, I'm going to finish fabricating my aluminum palmrest and screen bezel. I've already done rough versions, using a spare keyboard assembly I have lying around, so I know how to make it work and roughly what it will look like. The rough version also helped me refine my measurements, and I already have the final drafted onto a sheet of thin gauge aluminum (roughly the same thickness as the stock plastic). This time around, I'll probably have a machine shop cut it. I can do a clean job with what I have at home, but it takes a while, so having someone else do it gives me time for other things.
