    Hi folks.

    I saw a thread quite a while ago about this here, but nothing much was resolved.

    I picked up my 15" MBP last year, brand new from Apple. I use it quite a bit doing general stuff, a bit of gaming but mostly photo editing and some minor graphic design.

    With this use, the spot on the right where I rest my hand is being eaten away, slowly.

    Here's a few photos of what I'm talking about. They're not of my computer, but it's pretty well identical to that.



    Before you ask, I don't wear a watch or anything on my wrist other than my skin.

    I'm debating picking up a Speck case, or something similar in hopes of slowing it down.

    last time I saw a thread about this, someone said that the acidity of some people's skin oils can cause this... mine doesn't do this, though, so I wouldn't know.

    I have two or three tiny 'pits'. Even though they could just be dinks in the edge.
    Anyway, I too have heard that they can be caused by oils in your skin.
