    I just recently purchased an iPad mini with a broken screen that Im going to fix up but noticed that that aluminum casing has several small blemishes and nicks. Does anybody know of a way to polish them to make them less obvious? I know I won't make them completely go away but anything to make it less obvious, perhaps a liquid, cream or something that I can polish them with. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    there is no liquid that can remove them comopletely. Best you buy a casing. Overtime, you will completely forget about the scratches.

    You shouldn't have bought an iPad Mini with a broken screen first place. Most broken screen iPad always HAVE dents, blemishes, and nicks. You don't need to complain. Just fix the screen and enjoy your Mini.

    Cover it with a nice case and you will never know scratches are there.

    Best bet is to buy a new aluminum shell for it.

    This is right. You will never be able to get rid of scratches without completely refinishing the back, and it still probably will never look "factory."
