    I've had a MBP 2010 unibody and I dropped it so now it has a dent in the corner. It's been 3 months and it still bugs me when I see it. Is there a way to fix it?

    No. Attempts to do so may only make it worse. As long as it still runs well, I wouldn't let it worry me. In the grand scheme of life, it's insignificant.

    I am worried that when I sell it, the price will drop so much because of this =(

    I understand, but there's no way to fix dented aluminum like that.

    You won't be able to do anything about it.
    At least that's all that happened to your MBP.

    That's a bummer....

    Can't do much about that, and you'll have to factor that into the resale price. Sorry -- if you throw in something like a backpack, sleeve or software than you might make up for the loss in resale value. (Or you can just keep using it yourself!)

    Frankly, this sort of damage and the glass screens are part of the reason I wish Apple would do right and make damage protection available to its customers! If you're going to build a museum piece, at least offer an insurance policy.

    Pray that your keyboard goes out or something before your warranty is up. They will have to replace the top case and thus no more dent.
