The edge-to-edge glass screen is made from Corning's Gorilla Glass, which means that the screen is just about impossible to scratch. The underside is made from carbon fiber, which is an extremely strong polymer, and the top of the lid is covered in machined aluminum. The battery is said to last up to 8 hours and 53 minutes, but real-world test will no doubt put it around 8 hours.
