    Just finished unboxing a new rMB and was mildly upset to see "damage" to the lid surface.
    Has anyone else run into this? Thoughts? Looking at returning it. All four corners are scuffed and the logo looks like it has some dreaded East Indies fungal infection. :(

    Update: Contacted the reseller. Turns out that Original Windex and a soft cloth removed all the mess. :D

    Is it me, or is the stainless steel insert missing?

    If so it should definitely be returned...

    - Probably just looks different through the frosted plastic.

    When I contacted the reseller, they said they have seen this on units that were wrapped before the glue (from the decal) had properly set.
    Basic Windex and a soft cloth took it right off. No blemish.
