    More than likely not. You might try a skin if it bothers you a lot.

    It might be possible. There are aluminum polish kits you can buy on Amazon and elsewhere.

    Here is one of many websites telling you how to polish/buff aluminum http://voices.yahoo.com/how-polish-aluminum-6467758.html

    Personally, I would first take it to a jeweler's shop. They have the type of buffing equipment that should work on a MBA.

    That is so tiny, and so unnoticeable, I wouldn't waste 1 sec of time even thinking about it.

    Scuffs set you free, now you can stop babying your laptop and start using it as it was meant for, as a tool.

    Now you are free....

    Its a laptop, it is going to get scratches and scuff marks on the base and top of the laptop, espeically if you use it as its meant to be, lugged around. ;) Who cares

    Tears and acceptance.

    Its a phase we seem to go through. Same thing with my car when I bought it new, I would wash it every week and park far away from others. I still end up with scuff marks and random dents. After awhile I didn't even pay attention to those things and cared more for the maintenance of my vehicle, rather than aesthetics.

    For my Air I spent $100 on the Sena folio case, admittedly it is expensive, but it offers both protection, peace of mind, and convenience to carry it wherever I go without thinking about these things.
