The case of the Acer Aspire V3-551G has a very nice glossy piano finish which gives it a metallic look, the only one downside to this it will be a fingerprint magnet so you will have to carry a cloth with you wherever you go.

The case is decently firm, the chiclet keyboard and touch pad are very decent, the overall workmanship of the chassis is good, considering the price of the notebook.
