    My backpack fell the other day and now a corner of my macbook is bent (even if it was inside a soft sleeve)

    I've thought about getting a hard cover, do they really scratch MacBooks?

    I'm pretty sure I have the 'Incase' hard cover (bought at Apple store). it hasn't damaged my Mac at all. I remove it once in a while to clean out any dust and the computer looks perfectly brand new underneath. I suppose you have to be a bit careful installing and removing it. Otherwise, it's fine.

    How hard must a cover be to protect a computer made out of METAL that got dented?

    The hard cases themselves don't scratch the MacBook but they can trap dirt, sand, etc inside of the case and that can scratch the MacBook.
    They also usually fit so tightly (with little locking tabs) that they can't easily be removed without using some sort of tool to pry off the little tabs and that can also scratch the MacBook.
