    Hi all,

    I've got a question:

    It seems as if there is a "scratch" in the black coating/paint (?) underneath the screen. Is this even possible and if, what should I do with it (I've got Apple Care).

    See picture, the "problem area" is in the right lower corner.

    There is no actual scratch on the screen, I can't feel anything on it, so it must be under the screen?

    I believe AppleCare will not take care of cosmetic things.

    Looks like it is on the face of the screen right on the rounded edge. This area is where most suffer damage from impacts.

    Defiantly looks like a scuff or surface impact abrasion. It is probably very shallow so that it can't be felt.

    Tax for the reply's. Maybe I just send it in, in the near future and get it repaired for the "accident fee"
