OH MY GOD! It's humongous you could spot it from a mile away! It looks like your computer got shot or something! Did you drop it onto hard concrete?

Get real, this is not worth taking it back for. Not only that, it is on the underside and there is a 99% chance something made that scratch while you were using it. Anyhow, a small grain of something hard can scratch it, so if you can even convince them that it was there when you bought it, chances are you'll scratch it yourself sooner or later.

I really had to strain to see that. I happen to have a scratch on the top extreme right of my MBP when looking at the apple, however, I never notice it. Also, when you use your MBP, it will get some wear.

The worst is yet to come my friend. I was like you when I got my PowerBook. Now, she's got some nice ones on the bottom, and a few on the front bottom portion (where the screen release button is) from my belt buckle. It's no big deal, you're just making it your own.

Dude rancher, the scratch is not only tiny, its on the bottom. Unless you are a perfectionist, you are likely to completely forget about it.

How can you not want your MacBook Pro to be absolutely perfect if you spent almost 3K on it? I know I want my MacBook Pro to be in perfect condition and it still is in fantastic condition because I have a see-thru case on it.

it's a small scratch, and it's on the bottom. i'd live with it and not turn it over. btw, was the scratch your fault or did it come like that?

This sort of consumer fickleness is almost nauseating. I had to stare at your picture for several seconds before I thought I could see the scratch that you were referring to. I wish more people would just learn to love what they have instead of wasting other people's time, paying the repackaging fees, returning everything and having to wait for the replacement model for some minor imperfection that will always be there.

Your MacBook Pro isn't a piece of artwork in a gallery, its a notebook with an aluminum case. Scratches give it character. Deal.

You know after looking at it carefully... it looks like a hair strand...

Have you tried wiping the "scratch off? :p
