My i3 normally gets no signal indoors - maybe one red bar near a window.

In the past i have found that sticking it to my office window will eventually get 3 green bars, maybe not.

However this morning i plugged the i3 into my PC using the cable as the batteries are charging. I put the i3 on top of my PC case and noticed i almost immediately got 3 - 4 green bars. If i touch the i3 it goes immediately to one red. If i let go it goes back to 3 - 4 green bars.

The PC is less than a meter away from the window and the case is on my desk. Would the aluminium case of the PC help boost the signal? Would an aluminium plate under my i3 in the car help keep a strong signal?
