    there is this grey spot I have on the bezel of my mbp.

    if i dont clean it for a day or to it turns extremely dark but when i rub my finger across it for a bit it turns lighter

    also if i dont clean it would laso get on the bottom side of my casing

    like right now it's an inch away from the isight when i close it and leave it overnight it also has the spot about an inch from the trackpad but that is easily rubbed off

    how do i remove this spot, this mbp was just bought 1 month and half ago:confused::confused:

    Go to an Apple store and throw that piece of s*** at the nearest Genius and tell him it's unacceptable, and that he's lucky you're in a good f***ing mood right now.

    (or just ignore it)

    i have the same thing...

    looks like the top case rubs against the bezel when the laptop is closed. Apple may or may not replace the bezel, probably citing normal wear/tear.

    Those dark spots are due to the aluminum casing rubbing against itself. Unfortunately its not going to go away and will probably get worse over time. The MBP cases are hard anodized and the dark spots mean the hard coat is rubbing off.

    I'm not making this stuff up, my G5 case has some dark spots that go away when I rub them or wipe them down, then come back later. You'll also see them in Mac Pro cases where the door is placed.
