    I just had my new macbook!
    Got too excited and starting using it.
    By accident I got some newspaper dirt on it.
    I panicked and tried cleaning it with a tissue paper!
    to my dismay it created a hell of alot of scratches that is driving me crazy!
    I just want to just throw it out the window!
    Is there a way for me to replace the case?
    Is it adviceable to sand the scatches out?

    So you want to throw a $1000+ thing away because of a scratch? Send it to me.

    If you're willing to take a chance get some of that car scratch remover. Doesn't seem to work on my car though. And I'm not sure how it works on non-painted surfaces.

    Are the scratches more than just superficial? Meaning if I closed my eyes would I be able to feel them?

    There's one big one on it. But all the other once are very superficial!
    Yes I did try polishing it with applesauce!
    It does remove it! But when does and dirt come into contact those things come right back in!
    what brand are you using?

    What brand? Please tell us you are not using actual apple sauce to polish your MacBook. There is only one brand of applesauce polish, found here:
