Lol nail file. Good luck with thatI'd probably try and soften those off a bit with a nail file or something so they're not so sharp.
No way to really 'fix' them though, no
Still, looks pretty minor, so as long as your MBP is still working fine you were somewhat lucky
You are probably paranoid, it's not that big of a deal: it's just a tiny dent.I won't be adding a case to it. For some reason I cannot stand cases, guess I will just have to show off the battle scars.
I don't know if I am being paranoid or not, but it seems like it takes quite a bit longer to show the Apple Logo when booting.
Although I don't know for sure but IMHO MBPs are not powder coated. Powder coating is a fairly heavy plastic covering baked on. The unit does, I think, have a clear finish on it but it certainly isn't powder coated.It's powder-coated aluminum which is essentially painted aluminum.
You have to be Wired to the internet for the "d" AHT to work. It doesn't use WiFi when you try to use the online AHT.It is booting pretty slow this morning. Thought I would try the AHT, but that didn't work. I boot, hold down D, and it takes me to my desktop. WTF. 10.7.3 BTW.
I was able to run it, while sitting on my couch before. Same computer, still running the same load of Lion from when I unsheathed it from it's beautiful packaging.You have to be Wired to the internet for the "d" AHT to work. It doesn't use WiFi when you try to use the online AHT.

Just an FYI, they're anodized aluminum, not powder-coated. Anodizing is not painting. It thickens the oxide layer on the outside of the metal. Anodized items can be dyed different colors, like the iPod Nano, and then sealed. It's a much different process than painting.It's powder-coated aluminum which is essentially painted aluminum.
