The enclosure is not 100% made out of aircraft grade aluminum but even so build quality is excellent.

1 through 6 also double as media keys (Play/Pause, Previous, Next, Mute, Volume Down/Up), F1 through F5 can also be used to switch between the available profiles and finally F6 through F12 can be used to rotate between available illumination effects (the -/+ keys are also the brightness level keys).
