Anyone scratch their chassis where they used touch-up paint? Is so, where from and what is the name?
There's no paint on the Mac Pro's case, it's anodized aluminum. I doubt you'll find paint that looks similar :/
He's a Ducati guy. Looks are everything
Contrary to popular belief I do not ride a Ducati because of looks. I do ride it because the bike weights under 400 lbs. dry and has 140 hp. Yeah Yeah I know, it is a hard association to break, but I just like to take care of my stuff. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind-of-guy, but I like to invest in things that are of quality because when it comes time to sell them, they will give you a good return.
Besides, I highly recommend all of you to find a Ducati 1098 or 848 and a race track. The most amazing experience you will ever have.
If you take such great care of your stuff, why is your Mac Pro scratched?
Well I have a grinding noise on the inside of my Mac Pro somewhere. I thought it was the forward most chassis fan. It turned out to be the fan that is built-in to the heat sink of the CPU.
So when the Apple Store replaced the fan I originally asked them to replace the machine came back scratched. It is not that bad and more of an annoyance then anything. I'm so neurotic about keeping my toys meticulous. Sometimes I think it gets in the way of enjoying them... anyways
I am not really mad at the tech's at the Apple Store either, I spend so much money there for business they basically take care of any problems I have with no questions.
I sympathize. I have a number of cycles in my garage, and probably spend too much time washing them. . .especially the Ducatis
As far as the scratch, if it's in an obvious location, maybe you can move the computer around so you don't see it. Otherwise, just find a tasteful sticker to cover that area. An aluminum scratch is basically a 'ditch' that will reflect light as you view it from various angles. Putting paint in that ditch will only make it look like a different reflection/refraction and may draw more attention to it.
ah man that sucks :/ what Apple Store did you go to? I need to get my PSU replaced (it's buzzing), so I'm kind of scared they'll scratch my baby
