    Just saw THREE pretty bad scratches at the bottom case. Had no idea how that happened. Wondering if anyone could give me some tips to "minimize" or remove them. Thanks guys.

    This stuff is good for metal or plastic

    Follow up

    Does it really work? Have you tried? It says on the website "Not recommended for use on metal body of the latest generation of iPods."... I'm confused.

    Just curious but how often do you look at the bottom of your laptop?

    Ya, me too, and if you feel the need to remove them than that is cool that you care that it looks like new, but when would you ever need to worry about the scratches being visible on the bottom of the computer, I have a pretty decent scratch on the bottom of my MacBook, and it doesn't bother me one bit. But I have heard from other members in the past here that the stuff linked to does work a little bit.

    Thanks a lot. I'd give it a try... There are two light scratches and one deep one. I know it's at the bottom, but now that I noticed it, I just feel coo coo about it.

    Welcome to the world of owning an Apple product. They're pretty rugged for what they are, but when they do get a scratch boy... you notice it. Not because they're not scratch-resistant enough, but because we love our hardware, and want only the best for it.

    A few weeks into owning my 17" PowerBook, the writing piece of a ball point pen (don't ask) got stuck under my PowerBook and left some DEEP scratches.

    You will learn to live with scratches on your lovely hardware. There is no way to avoid them really. Chicks (and dudes) dig battle scars anyway.

    FYI, this is my first mac (low end Pro) - bought it only a week ago. I'm just a little bummed out.
