    I just noticed after a few weeks of using it it has these perfectly evened scratchings over the top casing...even though i primarily use a wireless keyboard.

    im not sure if its from anything specific...i dont wear sweaters, have any bracelets, or wipe it with wool..lol....i just had n iKlear cloth on it thats about it.

    i doubt im going to complain about it to apple but i was wondering since it looks like it was ingrained into the actual aluminum perhaps its in the design or fabrication of it? i just noticed it in bright natural light but otherwise cant even tell its there.

    this is the only other discrepancy with the umbp17 i have aside form the oily key wearing.


    thanks

    Intriguing ,,,,, considering i stated i dont wear anything while using it.

    it seems to be an even flush pattern.
    i was curious if it was on others machines aswell...as it seems pretty weird.

    What... Thundercats?

    Aluminium may not be the toughest material in the world but it's definitely tougher than cat claws.

    Didn't realise aluminium was scratch resistant ;)

    It's not, but cat claws are too soft. They're good for shredding paper and cloth, but they're utterly useful for engraving and woodchipping. :D

    Maybe the hawk or other suspicious animal that may have access to your MBP.

    i kind of similar scrapes it looks like its part of the aluminum or ours were cut from the same batch lol...not sure, however i dont see mine in most light other than in the sunlight/natural light.

    oh well....i went through enough hassles to get a decent one...i think Rev A's were abit full of nuances though.


    not sure :rolleyes:
