    Once I applied bodyguardz top film and I ruined it. I was peeling it off and I saw a tiny black line on my MacBook pro retina. I haven't noticed it before. It may came with it from china. I tried to rub it off with my thumb/ cloth. It is still there. It is 1 week old and I really took a good care of it. Should I call Apple? Or get over it? But Apple does provide an excellence customer service. what should I do?

    If it is distracting when the display is on, then you need to call Apple. If you can't tell otherwise, then don't worry about it.

    Just return it and buy again if it bothers you

    Little black line? Could be a line of dead pixels. I'd return that O_O

    It is on the body. Not a screen.

    Thread title makes it seem like you're talking about the display. But in reality, your machine is going to get scratches throughout its lifetime, and they will happen after the return period ends. If you want to waste time returning it for a new one now you can since there is no restocking fee, but there is no guarantee the next one won't be damaged within a few weeks or months or years after the return date passes.

    If you wouldn't mind, could you take a photo of it? There's something I'm curious about.

    Try giving it a good rub with some P40 sandpaper. That'll shift the "tiny black line" that mysteriously appeared after you applied then removed the "bodyguardz top film", but which probably "came with it from china" and is therefore Apple's fault and not yours.

    You could probably sue Apple for causing you PTSD too.
