I did a little acoustic test. Tapped on the P3 with a metal ruler. The back panel is obviously aluminum and gives a metal on metal tick when tapped. So does the side up to the seam. Tap on the top piece and the sound changes to a more dampened sound. Same sound as when I tap the ruler on my plastic keyboard body. You can also tell plastic from glass faces by the difference in sounds when tapped.

You can tell by the temperature too.

Aluminum is a heat sync. Sucks the warmth from your hand. Likewise if the player gets stressed and hot you'll feel it quickly.

Plastic, metal, still a great player IMO. Just get a case to protect it if you drop it, and you're good to go!!! Still, I say it's aluminum (Heh!!!)!!!
