    Question Macbook Pro : Blemish Question
    Hey forum! I'm new to Mac-Forums, and this is the first online-forum that i will be participating in. As my starter thread, i'd like to ask a question about my Macbook Pro, and minor blemish and scratch issues. I was just wondering if my nails are able to scratch the Aluminum Unibody of the Macbook Pro. I'm not a perfectionist (anymore) and have some minor blemishes on my notebook right now, but whenever my nails rub roughly on the aluminum surface, i kind-of freak and immediately wet a cloth to clean. So my question is:
    Can my nails scratch the Aluminum Unibody of the Macbook Pro? Answering ASAP, and supporting proof would be much appreciated!
    Thanks ahead of time!

    I have not found a fix and I know that nails generally don't scratch the aluminum but anythings possible. You could try and get a case to protect it.

    Aluminum is a very soft metal, and while I doubt your fingernails will scratch it, I will say that in my experience, it scratches very easily. In many cases, much more so than a good quality ABS plastic.

    If it really concerns you, I'd recommend a snap-on shell like the Incipio Feather or Speck See-Thru Satin.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks a lot guys! So far, my fingernails brushing against the aluminum hasn't done any damage. I mustered up the courage last night to get my fingernails and have an intense nail-rubbing session on the palm-rests of the Macbook. I can surely state that no damage was done
