    I just dropped a capped, plastic, chapstick container from about 8 inches above my mac book proa fter using it and it chiped/scratch the paint on my mac.

    thankfully i already got a ding when I first got it so this isn't the first "shock" of damaging something so beautiful. I am really careful with mine but its crazy how fragile these things are. You'd think they would use better paint that couldnt be so easily scratched. :( wahhhh

    That seems excessively cheap...though I have noticed that my white MacBook does scratch rather easily for being made out of "polycarbonate"

    Your MBP doesn't need chapstick... why were you applying it in the first place?

    lol everyone is a comedian.

    the chapstick cant way more then a few ounces... yet it can chip a 2,500 dollar laptop.

    apple's build quality never ceases to amaze me!!! /sarcasm

    maybe he/she wanted to kiss the mbp hence the chapstick to moisten it.

    ummm... paint??

    what apple laptop is painted? i thought they were either anodized alloy or polycarbonate.

    polycarbonate attracts scratches like a cd does, mines showing them.

    anodized alloy is pretty tough, i threw my ipod classic onto gravel (got leg hooked on aux cable when i got outta the car so it flung the ipod out!) and it chipped the coating but i put that down to because it plysically damaged the alloy. ipod is still works perfect though
