Default Finish on Black 1018 Lid? - 04-23-2011, 01:35 PM

Just a quick question, Does the 1018 still have the glossy lid as all the other minis, that shows every fingerprint, smudge etc. I was hoping Dell finally wised up and had more of a matte finsh on the 1018.

My lid is badly scratched, bought my 1012 second hand, anyone know of the type of paint is used. i'm planning on using stopper 1200 wet and dry and then repainting with celulose..
