    Hey everyone, I slid my laptop under my bed last night just before I fell asleep. I've pulled it out this morning and there is a huge scratch all the way across the lid. Does anyone know of anything I can use to perhaps buff it out or something?

    Thanks for the info!

    Sadly, no:(

    The only thing you can do is get the screen case replaced. Dunno how much it will cost, shouldn't be THAT much though...:D

    to hear to that.
    no there is no exact way other than getting that lid replaced.

    i noticedthe other day that there were a couple of scratches and dings in my macbook pro 17" unibody on the rest area, which is bizarre, considering its usually closed and i used a wireless keyboard.

    i was irked but not much can be done at this point... =\

    While your Mac may look magical, it is not. Most own a notebook that is aluminum and no matter what people believe it is not magical. It will scratch and the scratches aren't self-healing.

    You can try painting it or you can try to stick an even uglier speck hard shell case over it and hope it hides it. Another option is a skin.

    I know how you feel, I hate scratches too but think of it as a sign of use! It shows that you bought an expensive laptop as a tool, to use it, not only for the show.

    Do people seriously buy laptops for 'the show'?

    About as often as people believe 2" somehow will future-proof their machine. ;)

    I'd go for the Billy Mays stuff. You could use the free vacuum to clean the evil, computer scratching dust bunnies from under your bed.
