Is there hope?

It isn't a huge problem, but it makes the laptop look really uneven when its closed.

The clip on my InCase backpack came loose and it fell to the concrete. I'm surprised that's the only damage it caused

I'm wondering if I should call InCase, is there a toll-free number they can be reached at?

Builds character. Seriously though, I think "well-used" looks good on metal. It's kind of personalized now. Best of all, you don't need to worry about keeping it pretty. I wouldn't sweat it and go overboard trying to straighten it. You may end up breaking more than you fix.

I had the same thing happen to my 13' unibody MacBook when i dropped it less than a foot away from a concrete floor. I thought it would be well protected since it was inside my incase bag.

This is what the lid looks like while closed:




and here you can see how much the dent has raised the right corner when the lid is closed:



This is the bag it was in:
