    You'd have to try really hard to dent it. But be warned, the anodized aluminum looks gorgeous but is easy to scratch. Rings, rivets or zippers on pants, belts, pens, even fingernails can all scratch it. Hell, ALL of them in my best buy (yea, I made them go though all of their stock to find one that wasn't scratched) came with a scratch. :mad:

    But I guess dropping it could dent it.... but how do you drop a notebook? Do you use it standing up?

    It is fairly easy. I had a bottle of nail polish drop from 3 feet onto my previous laptop. Left a small and bothersome dent on the palm rest.

    I guess it would be called an accident, you know, by transporting your laptop from point A to point B. ;)

    I guess, but it's so big compared to something like an iPhone it just seems easy enough to keep a hold of.
