    Hi guys, very disappointed today s my practically new Magic Mouse (2 weeks) was put in my bad today without a case and I took it out and it has heaps of scratches on the front. They are not the bad but I can feel them when I scroll across the mouse. It looks bad too, is there anything I can buy to help heal it a little bit?

    Wrong forum I know, but I tried the other and still no reply. I use this with my MBP so it would be great if I could get some help.

    I am not scratched... what are you talking about??



    But seriously. maybe some sort of buffing would work? I have had mine since December and no scratches.. very odd.. you have any pictures of the damage?

    Best I could do, right near where the light is. You can't see it well on the camera but there is damage there that I can feel with my fingernails if I rub them across. This is not damage caused from regular use. This is my stupidity by putting it without protection in a bag full of books and other crap. Maybe this would help? Looks like it ships to Australia and would work perfectly, might give it a go!

    oh... you threw it in a bag with a bunch of other stuff??

    That would make sense then... Just be more careful with it and maybe even just get one of those cases for small compact cameras and put it in there from now on.

    If it works perfectly, you may have to get used to it, but if it does not work as well anymore, give Apple a ring and they'll probably post you a new replacement.

    Radtech offers quite a few good quality scratch removing "creams" and polishes. I've used them for my friend's MacBook (the Magic Mouse is made of the same material) and they worked really nice.

    Flitz is good for polishing out scratches, but in a pinch plain old toothpaste will work as well.

    If AppleCare doesn't work, sell it on Ebay and get a new one from Ebay.

    Mine has some scratches too. I was thinking about once it gets bad enough to have colorware paint it for me. Kinda pricey but I want a different color and think it would be worth it. Their coatings are supposed to be really strong. www.colorwarepc.com

    it would really suck if you could see the lines of the scratches through the paint...

    Can you buy AppleCare with mice? I bought the mice separately, although if they care I have AppleCare with my MBP.
