It shouldn't be hard to find what you are looking for. Almost all the laptops that I work on have a 100% plastic housing. Even if some of the trim looks like shiny metal, it's probably just plastic.

Here's an example I found with a quick browse of the Dell website, i5 and 15.6" screen.

Actually, it's almost impossible to find what I'm looking for.

I have three laptops here that I would have sworn where 100% plastic but on closer inspection they all had either a metal film over the KB or the keys where capped with metal etc.

I just called a local computer store where the owners are friends of mine & had her check every one of the many computers they had on display. She had told me earlier when I asked that "I'm not really sure, but I think a lot of our laptops are all plastic".

This morning she told me "well on very close inspection I realized that only the very cheap models which I know you don't want are all plastic."

I recently bought my mother a new HP LT & she said it was all plastic. I went & looked at it yesterday & even though it certainly looks/feels like plastic on very close inspection it isn't.

This is not something 99 out of 100 people would be bothered by or even notice, but my wife has some very serious medical conditions that we constantly have to work around.
