    So I am returning my defective MBP for a new one Monday, but have a concern for my replacement. I have had this computer for two days and the bottom already has a few scratches/scuffs. I've treated this thing perfectly, and cannot figure out how these scratches got their.
    Are the unibody MBP's really this susceptible to scratches?
    Will sliding a computer on a desk cause this, even though they have rubber feet?
    Will clear film help? Is it worth $50, or should I just deal with the inevitable?
    Thanks!

    Just sliding the laptop will do it, but I don't understand why you would slide it when all you have to do is set it down. I don't think you should be too worried about it because no one really looks at the bottom and I doubt that you would spend time looking at the bottom too. I think you should definitely take care of the areas your palm sits on, the trackpad, and the screen which is made of glass.

    my unibody macbook also has about 4 scratches on the bottom. I have treated it with absolute care; i guess it's just the nature of the aluminum to lightly scratch. the more i use my macbook, the more i realize that each scratch is a battle scar, and i should be proud of my workhorse. regarding your clear film, i honestly doubt you'll see a big difference with the protective layer. you could get a plastic case by incase or speck, but that would defeat the purpose of having an aluminum computer.
