    How many scratches/marks do you have on your notebooks?

    Does it bother you?

    None, nada, 0! I'm one of those "anal" types, for a lack of a better word.

    The only way a scratch could bother me would be if it were on the screen. Besides that, I couldn't care less.

    I'm guessing you drive a 1978 Ford Pinto. Just as long as it gets you to work, right?

    Not very many. I treat all of my electronics nicely.

    I don't even have a car :^) But my mac is a G3 iBook that's at least four years old, so as long as it allows me to compute, I can't tell whether it's scratched or not. :D

    TOO MANY TO COUNT on my macbook. I have never treated any of my previous laptops with such harshness and lack of care as my macbook which made me love it even more. It's a tool!

    I always try to keep everything looking new.. just because I feel better using them that way..

    Unfortunately when I got my first "sock" for my MBP, I zipped it up and caught the corner and took a little paint of... :(

    Only the regular user marks. I use my 2 and a half year old Powerbook every day and take it from home to work in an axio backpack that I bought for it.

    I have millions of tiny hairline scratches on the display case of my MacBook, because it is the high-gloss white. The black bottom case has one scratch, probably because I put it down on a screwdriver :eek:

    None that are distracting/easily visible, but there are probably hundreds if not thousands of small marks. It doesn't bother me at all. It's a 20 month old tool that has been used extensively. If I wanted it to be a work of art I'd have put it in a glass case and never used it.

    No scratch so far, however there is a mark (tiny black dot) near the Apple logo. I guess it's bad paintwork or powder (anodized aluminum) work or whatever. I'm trying not to think about it or I will go suicidal.

    Just the expected amount from carting it back and forth to University for a year in a laptop bag. Each tiny mark just shows another day of hard work for my Macbook and I! ;):D
