    Like a fucking retard I gently tossed it on the bed. Well, my gun and cell phone were on the bed and I didn't see them because of the comforter. I pick it up and there's three scratches on the top lid:

    I've never been one to worry about scratches and marks on my laptops.

    I don't use a sleeve or any sort of protection (I like it bareback) with any of my laptops, I just toss them in my bag with the rest of my other shit and go. They all have scratches of some sort, but the one MBA seems to take the grunt of them. Gives them character :dunno:

    I was staying in a hotel. I took my pants off and threw all the shit on the bed. :dunno: It's in a holster, it's not like I just left the shit laying out.

    My Macbook is scratched to all hell. Take care of it too, must just be from sitting on the leather couch if its a bit dirty or something, I guess.

    Laptops are to be used, not to be stored like a classic muscle car. The more damage, the more life it has!

    Mine MB looks like it's had an intimate encounter with a belt sander!

    they cost a lot of money and look good. What's wrong with wanting to keep them that way?

    Nothing wrong, but why buy something and not give it any character? I mean don't beat the shit out of it, but at the same time, who cares if it's scratched, it's only aesthetics and still does the job properly!

    And yes I know they cost a lot, my MB was $2200 after taxes. Should have gotten a MBP for a few more bones... *grumble grumble*
