    Nope as noted, there's no easy fix. Apple's computers are not what you call easily repairable.

    I accidentally bumped mine against my 27" Cinema display. A chip of glass came of and there is a scratch on the side next to the display of my MacBook Pro. The only solution for me was to accept it, a repair is way too expensive, now 6 months later I hardly notice it.

    My old 2010 Macbook Air suffered immensely while in my care.
    The biggest injustice perpetrated upon it took place on the toile...in the office.

    I dropped the poor thing corner first two feet down on the solid stone floor tiles.
    Made a huge dent in the bottom (and top) left corner. -it was closed when I dropped it.
    The poor thing looked like I'd gone to town on it with a hammer.

    Still worked like a charm after, though, so no harm done.
    And after a couple of weeks I stopped noticing.


    It's in a better place now.

    That is why you all need a hard case like Speck to protect your MacBook Pro. My rMBP took so many beating in my backpack and it doesn't have any dents or chipping.

    I'd rather have a small dent than an ugly hard case :)

    The best thing about a Speck is I don't have to waste money on one.

    Simply exercising a bit of care, not to be confused with babying my MBP/MBA/MB's , and they look like new years later.

    Risk? There's risk in every single move one makes, even a Speck product can be damaged. :D

    Ok small dent means low selling value

    You are 100% correct, but I've never ever been obsessed with resale value. I buy my much loved Macs to _Use_ and _Enjoy_ .

    Make no mistake as recently as a few days ago I received a compliment that my well traveled 3 year old MBPr looked like new with it's cosmetically perfect condition. But that's for me to enjoy, not the next person I give it to.

    PS: Better re-sale

    I don't buy a Mac to sell it, I buy it as a tool which I use about 14-15 hours a day for a year or two.
