Apple has been making systems with aluminium and glass cases, as well as
aluminium keyboards for years.    Some people have developed allergies to
Apple's "aluminum" cases -- aluminum cases may contain nickel which is a
known allergen and won't go away with age.   Most 2-3 year old Apple models
can boot linux or Windows but recent models can be a problem due to Apple's
heavy reliance on thermal management sensors and associated power
management.
