Just noticed a bunch of hairline scratches on my white macbook, would displex work?

    I've heard displex works wonders at removing scratches off glossy plastics of all kinds (ipods, psps, etc). Anyone have experience in removing scratches from your white macbook? What works? Thanks.

    I am not to sure about duplex, but I sure as hell know that brasso works, and pretty well I might add. It is great for the hairline scratches and a bit deeper than hairline, but the ones that you can feel when you slide your finger nail through would still be there, but thats with any material. The problem with using brasso though is you have to use it for at least 20 minutes to get rid of a spot of scratches.
    This is how I do it;
    apply brasso using toilet paper on one area
    wait ten minutes
    use an old cotton shirt to wipe for 20 minutes
    ten minutes in put brasso on another spot
    once the 20 minutes is up start brassoing the other spot
    repeat :D

    this would help your macbook look good as new, and it looks more "polished" if its an older laptop, makes it look like you just took it out of the box

    of course now I have a new 2.4 penryn blackbook with an incase hardshell on, so that isn't an issue for me anymore :D

    Well let's just say this. I use Displex on my PSP and iPods. It works wonders at removing scratches from those glossy plastics. If it works for those, will it work for the macbook's glossy exterior also? It only makes sense that it does.
