So stupid ass me, dropped my iPhone 6 on the corner of my rMBP and it did a tiny damage to it.. How can I fix it?
My iPhone 6 has a tiny dent on the bottom of it as well, the same size of the dent on the MBP. Since it is on the bottom of the iPhone it isn't as bad as the rMBP, only if you look for it.

Would like to know also if there is some touch up paint that is similar to rMBP color finish

Short of sanding it down.

Short of using a little emery paper to sand it down until it is smooth there is pretty much nothing you can do that won't make it look worse....

leave it alone...any work you try on it will lead to the surrounding aluminum finish to dull out or scratched

It hurts but just suck it up and move on. It's a battle scar. It's just like the first scratch or dent on a car you bought new.

@OP: No fix that I can think of, I'd roll with ignoring it and moving on. I like the battle scar idea. :cool:

First world problem.
So is a lot of what is being discussed here on MR and on the internet in general.
Guess all of us need to shut up then unless our problem involves drowning in a refugee boat. :rolleyes:

I am sad you have no sense of humour. Guess just telling the OP to ignore it and move on is so much better....

Humor? As if that tired little trope is even still remotely funny.
Better? At least it's marginally on topic, which is more than I can say for your driveby meme which would make just about as much (or little) sense when posted to almost any other message board topic on the entire internet.

If you tape around the area unaffected by the small dent, then carefully use an emery board to soften the rough edge, you can at least get rid of the nicked feel. There probably is an automotive paint that would be close in color, that you could use to touch up the unpainted area, but then to get that not to stick out like a sore thumb, you'd have to do some sanding again.

So after writing all this, I'd confer with everyone else. Just leave it. Or find something to cover it up - a vinyl wrap could do that - but you'd definitely want to smooth out the nick first.
