The white version, starting at $800, £650 or AU$1,399, has matte aluminum surfaces that resist oily fingerprints.

Even the aluminum lid has a special ridged texture to keep it looking good. It might look like plastic, but it's cool to the touch.

You also get a matte antireflective screen, unlike many recent thin laptops. It's a crisp 1080p IPS panel with wide viewing angles.

And -- surprise! -- it's a touchscreen, too. One of the only ones we've see without a glass front.

Here's how shallow the SD card slot is. You'll want to remove it immediately after you transfer files, and you'll need to figure out where to put the stopper.

You can't charge the laptop over USB-C, either -- you'll need to use the included proprietary charger.
