Whether to choose a laptop with a metal case?

Does it make sense to choose a laptop with metal case, beyond aesthetics, is there any practical benefit?

In many reviews mentioned that the metal housing effectively dissipates heat, is this true?

There are some modern materials, comparable in strength with metal? Some phones, for example, make the case from carbon fiber, for laptops this is not applicable (and does it make sense)? Like Sonia was the model in this case.

Lenovo series ThinkPad has a magnesium alloy body, like carbon there somewhere even.

With regards to metal — I don't like the heat dissipates, but soprikasalis surface — hands lying on the keyboard, or knees if they are worth it.

I have a dell vostro v13 magnesium alloy. Never heard the fan, never felt excessive heat transfer on hands, knees. But the iron in it is not powerful, and the temperature is not high.

From experience I can say that, in theory, to bother is to mount the screen to the housing. I still works fine under ancient ASUS A3F of ordinary plastic, but with a mechanical problem. The hinges between the screen and the body in this iron, almost eternal. But due to old age the body collapsed plastic housing mounting to hinges. Because of this, the screen you have to lean on what ever the subject to work normally.

In practice, your laptop most likely will break sooner for other reasons

My advice is to make the materials make sense only if you believe that buying a really good thing, but it is as always expensive.

I have a macbook pro 13, it is aluminum, it is a core i5, but it is heated only at the time of video processing or during long calculations in Matlab. Heated bottom cover, but not so much. All other elements remain cool.

Yes, the metal body has a great practical value. Improved thermal conditions, only one of the factors. The primary is the safety of the shell and preservation of its contents. Was in the old days, 5-7 years ago. good-quality plastic products with metal ribs. Now the consumer rules the roost. To boast, some manufacturers bonded to the aluminum pad on the plastic upper part of the body - a kind of foil Board.
But You must understand that the good thing will be worth good money. Good luck.

While available in the main "carbon". Real carbon fiber roads and properties it resembles tempered glass.- is strong enough, but then crumbles. However, the bulk of the buildings is "carbon". So that price can win. Everything else is from the Evil one. Intel to promote "their" development "ultrabook", not wanting to reduce the cost of the processors has forced manufacturers to look for ways to reduce the cost of other components. Hence, a new wave of interest in carbon fiber for housings of laptops.

There is another interesting factor, to me that's a metal body notebookow tactilely unpleasant.
Slightly rough plastic much better.

About strength — Lenovo good. Dissipation problems either, I have on Board NVidia when the full force of work — warm, but not excessively.
