Re: Some thoughts...

Apple Computer used polycarbonate plastic for years for the iBook laptops, Macbook laptops, and iPods because it is so tough. While it will scratch, it is very impact resistant. They use it for eyeglasses, too. You can drive a nail through it and it will not shatter. But, it will scratch. There were a lot of early iPod and iPod Nano owners having a total fit on the Apple Discussions pages about cosmetic scratches on their iPods. I had a pair of polycarbonate eyeglasses and they got solvent damage from lens cleaner (made for glass, evidently) and scratches, so I decided to forgo that option in the future. But it is not a cheap plastic.
