The system is build very thin. Acer says it's 22.1mm at it's thinnest and 30mm at it's thickest. Especially the bottom half without the screen looks exceptionally thin. If you've had the Acer 751 in your hands you know what I mean.
The system feels very sturdy. There's no flex in the palm wrest area. The screen is more flexible, but this shouldn't be any problem. Pressing down on the keyboard I notice it hardly bends down.
The lid on the screen is made of entirely glossy material. It easily picks up finger prints so be ready to clean it often. Or walk around with a dirty notebook.
The palm wrest area looked a bit like steel. Actually I think it is plastic that has been painted. It looks classy though and it's an improvement over the Acer 751.
Another large improvement over the 751 is that the battery sits entirely flush. It doesn't stick out on the back or bottom. Overall I think Acer has done a great job on the design and build quality. It easily beats the other Timeline models. I'll be happy to take this laptop on my trips to the coffee shop.
The weight of the Acer 1810T proved to be 1.44 kg including the large 5600 mAh battery. The American 1410 will be lighter since it comes with 4400 mAh battery.
