    I bought a used Mac Pro from e-bay last week. There were significant scuffs, scratches on both sides of the case. Has anyone ever used magic eraser to get rid of the scuffs? Any recommendations to rid of the scuffs, scratches besides sending it back?

    Magic eraser will get the black stuff but that's about it

    Afraid Lowendlinux is right, you can't remove the scratches.

    You could get a better condition cover on the right side but that's about it.

    Personally I wouldn't worry about it too much. You could just enjoy it for now keeping an eye out for a better one then sell your scratched one.

    It has always amazed me how rough a condition many if not most of these used G5's and Mac Pro's are in.
    In all my years being around PC's and Mac's, most of which were made from some type of plastic I don't recall seeing the level of case damage as these Apple Aluminum towers seem to end up with.
    It's almost like people feel Apple made these towers to be indestructible, so lets test them.
    Just my 2 cents worth.:)

    Does it work, and perform the job you would expect from your Mac?
    Did you buy it with the expectation of a perfect exterior? If that's what you were hoping for, but you have some minor scratches, then you have to decide if you can live with that (it IS used, after all). If you can't live with it, then send it back.
    I bet it will be expensive to return...

    The prominent solid-looking handles make them irresistible to move around, and bash into things in the process!

    Or you can just close your eyes...and you'll never see that scuffs again.
