People are quick to dismiss the flaking on that bezel, but it does seem to be a long term issue if you have it because that is a starting point for more chipping.

My iPhone 5 is perfect but my iPad Mini had a tiny chip out of the box too. Im not going to bother returning it or anything because I can barely see it but I do feel it when using the Mini. And that does concern me because a friend of mine started with a tiny chip that he only saw with a magnifying glass, but a month later its a lot bigger and he describes it as a sharp edge when he uses the phone. I dont think its a big deal but I am curious how much of the chipping will increase over a 2yr period.

I stopped by a local Best Buy and they had a slate demo. It was chipped all around the bezel where the metal was exposed underneath, it looked pretty bad. I'm sure if it were kept in a case it would fair better but just confirming the scuffgate.

anyone that still has a black anodized iPod mini from way back will find that over time the edges will be scratched off

Nope, that's light reflecting off the headphone jack and dock connector, Mr. CSI.

Yeah apple store will replace no matter where you got it from. If you bought from them they will give you a new one. If its from somewhere else they will give you b-stock.
