I have a white macbook and it has some ugly surface scratches on the outer casing. I understand this is normal. The scatches are only visible under certain angles of light reflextion, however, since a damp cloth won't get rid of them, I figured I'd ask if anyone knew of a method to remove them without harming the outer casing. Some sort of scratch remover or something.

They arn't deep, just very light surface scratches, I'd like to have my macbook shine like new again if possible.

I have tried Ice Cream.. and if you don't have an extra 3 hours to sit there scrubbing it into your computer, then it isn't going to work. I have spent a lot of time with it and my computer looks exactly the same as it did before.

I checked out the website, it sounds like just the thing I was looking for. However, if you've tried it to no avail on your macbook than I won't go for it.
Has anyone else had any luck with "icecream"?

I wasn't joking about the Brasso liquid.

Not sure if it's available in the US though?
