    Dear all,

    I have some unusual black scratches on my MBP at around the wrist area of the apple computer. I am wondering how should I go about getting rid of them?

    I am not sure what you mean by "black scratches". Are they erosions or are they simply scratches? There are reports of wrist area erosions.

    Sounds like scratches thats worn right through the anodized aluminium. One of the reasons I take my watch off (stainless bracelet) while using my MBP. If it is scratches, really sorry to hear that.

    personally I would call apple and tell them my "f" key is working intermitantly, and have them replace the keyboard/topcase. That is assuming you are still under wanrranty.
    Then again that is me.
    P.S. Stop wearing a watch, all it does is foul your computer. If you carry a cell phone a watch is just added bulk.

    Thing is: my watch is on the other hand. I will try the keyboard switch, but do they take the whole thing out or only the place where the keys are? (assuming I use the excuse of a malfunctioning key).

    It is not aluminum, it is really plastic underneath.

    I see... but concerning the keyboard, if I do have it changed will I have to change only the part where the keys are or the whole upper surface of the MBP?

    dang I have never seen that before. I dont rest my palms that much with a watch on to scrape it like that. I'll be sure to be a little bit more careful
