We all love our MBPs. I know the first time I got a little nick on the side of my MBP i was bummed. The aluminum is a sleek case but scratches are very noticeable compared to the traditional laptops. Maybe one wouldn't feel too bummed when they see each others MBP scratches. I know compared to some that this scratch is too small to be bummed about. But it bugs that you have to look at it every time. I'll get used to it though.
