    Recently noticed a small dent on the top of my MBP just above the Apple Logo...obviously it doesn't affect the performance but I was just wondering if anyone knew of a way to get rid of it...does apple offer a service?

    You'd have to buy a new display. Apple won't fix it unless you pay to replace the display.

    Yes, they're likely to refer you to a local Apple certified repair shop. It will cost you an arm and a leg. I had a dent on the bottom casing and wanted to replace it prior to selling. The cost of parts/labors was $170 and that was simply just to replace the remove-able plate. Can't imagine what the top panel would cost since you would have to remove the entire thing.

    I have a small dent on the upper left corner of the my MacBook Pro.

    It's a cosmetic issue, but it doesn't impede with its operation at all.

    I hope Apple uses better alloy on its future notebooks... aluminum dents too easily.
