I have never let my MBP off my desk and it has a few tiny tiny scratches on the top. I have OCD so it really bugs me. Is it unrealistic to expect it to stay perfect?
Absolutely unrealistic, as no computer is completely flawless. Just use it and enjoy it. Chances are it will get a few more scratches over the years. After you've owned a few dozen computers, it won't bug you so much.I have never let my MBP off my desk and it has a few tiny tiny scratches on the top. I have OCD so it really bugs me.

... or just wait to you get older and your vision ain't what it used to be, and you won't see any blemishes at all!Completely. Every machine is flawed. Mine is perfect to me, but let SandboxGeneral or simsaladimbamba examine it and they'll find flaws. Even straight out of the factory, they are flawed.
No, it wasn't. None are.My MBP was absolutely perfect when I got it
If it has scratches, it's not perfect... or even nearly perfect.and is still nearly perfect now (about 2 years later). It has a couple of scratches here and there. I take my MBP everywhere with me and only has about 4 scratches--one small one on the top and three long light ones on the bottom.
Normal wear and tear, such as scratches, aren't the same as damage.Treat your computer nicely and it won't get damaged.
Yeah, that pudding isn't perfect, either!!The proof is in the pudding.
I used to be the same way. I had skins on all of my Apple products, but I just strayed from that. I don't drop stuff, which is why I don't use cases. However, I still keep a skin on my 3GS because scratched polycarbonate just feels horrible to the touch. Believe me, I know. My old MacBook's original shiny surface is destroyed.I used to be obsessed with keeping every Apple product I owned in perfect condition. I bought cases for everything and the tiniest scratch was like a stab in the heart. One day I came to realize that nothing stays in perfect condition and that I might as well let go of my ridged mindset. Now, none of my Apple stuff has a case and I can admire the beauty of the product. I still take good care of all of it, I just let go of the idea that I needed these things to be in perfect condition. Believe me, it's better this way.
Are you kidding me? This would RUIN one of my good knives, and I hate when they get scratched!Take a knife and cut a nice long scratch on the bottom cover.
Now whenever you see the top scratches, just flip your computer over and you won't feel that bad anymore about those top scratches. You'll just want to kill me instead for offering this kind of advice.
