    A couple of months ago, I dropped my iPhone on my MBP, leaving a dent.

    I was wondering if there was any way to buff out the dent. I used to have a case on it, but I couldn't stand the added size to the computer. There are a couple of scratches too, but I can get them out with metal polish.

    Not really. You do not both our dents at all in any element. You pound out or use the suction method to get rid of dents. I do not recommend this process on your computer. In short, you are going to have to live with a small dent. Unless someone else has a fix.

    If you heat up the same aluminum that Apple uses and pour it into the dent the exterior would look fine.

    You could try the hairdryer + compressed air (turned upside down) method commonly used for car dents, but I'm not sure how well this method is for a MBP. Try at your own risk. Could damage it more than just a small dent.

    I use this for fine adjustments on my electronics.

    Might work on a little dent...
