    Looks like you scraped the powder coating off the edge there a little bit. There isn't much you can do about it.

    How could this be? I didnt scrape nothing. Will Apple replace it? If not, I guess ill be buying the Speck sleeve. I am so mad right now.

    I highly doubt that Apple will replace it.

    Which country are you in? In the UK you have 14 days return period.

    It certainly looks scratched. Don't worry about it though, it's just a computer.

    I just got back from the Apple stores Genius bar. They are going to replace it with a brand new Macbook pro. No questions asked. Thank you Apple!!

    Its true. I have to wait one to two weeks for Apple to process the exchange. The Apple store will call me when it arrives. I signed the form asking me if i wanted my data tranfered. They were very nice about it

    I gotta side with the OP (in terms of the story's truth). I complained about scratches (really really minor ones, even more so than the one the OP had) and they replaced the casing for me. My MBP was about 3 weeks old at that point too.

    seriously? you had a whole laptop replaced because of a scratch like this? you do realize its a laptop and it is bound to get scratched no matter how much you take care of it?

    man, people on mac rumors are just too ....
