    Unfortunately I managed to get a small chip on the casing of my MBA near the edge. I was thinking of buying some aluminium epoxy putty, followed by silver touch up paint.

    Is this the best way of repairing it? Has anyone got any brand recommendations?

    Past's posts suggest there is little u can do.

    U may try what u suggest but I'd be careful the result maybe worse than doing nothing. U need to texture-match and color-match, which in real life, very difficult.

    I suggest a small, tasteful decal.

    Or a case, think of it this way, it's just a computer, it's meant to be used and abused. Enjoy it!

    Honestly - dont bother, and don't obsess about it.

    Heh, I remember when my macbook got its first chips (on the back, it feel off my mattress onto the bed frame below). Heart felt pained for a while, but I quickly got over it. As was mentioned, it's just a laptop, and won't affect its usability one bit. :)

    Absolutely the truth.

    I have always had used cars, but this 2011 the car makers were not selling any so they had this 0-0-0 deal I could not pass up. Guess what, AM STRESSED OUT! I worry where I park, I get this recurring dream that somebody steals my brand new coche, is literally a nightmare I tell ya!
