    I got a tiny scratch on my ipads aluminum frame. Nothin major. I wanted to know of there is anything I can do about it. Is there touch up paint available for it? Cab I buff it oud somehow?

    There's really nothing you can do. If it's a tiny scratch just get an Apple Case to protect it and cover it up. At least it's not on your screen.

    Someone else asked this a few weeks ago. this same thing was suggested by you i believe.

    as I said in that one. THIS IS RUIN THE FINISH ON YOUR ALUMINUM!!!

    the product is for CHROME!!! and shiny surfaces. the reason it works is not that it takes away the scratches, but it just makes millions of other tiny ones around it blending them in. thats why you get the brushed look afterwards.

    There is NO chrome on the ipad. using this on anodized aluminum would take off the oxized/etched layer and just look awful.

    I would recommend staying far away from this for your ipad. or you run the risk of making that tiny scratch a huge eye sore.

    Just forget about it until you have a real problem. Then, you might even get a replacement.
