    I've got this dent in the back of my iPod...

    If I try and pop it out with a strong magnet, will I end up ruining the electronics inside? I'm disappointed in my dent

    I've got several small dents in my iPod by dropping it. Oh well, it's a year old

    Umm, maybe there's some odd way in which you take it to Apple and they give you a new one?

    If the magnet is strong enough to pop it out then there is a fair chance it might bork something inside. Then again it might be fine.

    Its stainless.....a magnet should have no attraction to it.

    I don't think they will do anything for a dent i'm affraid. It would probably fall under misuse... Just like when the screen cracks on your birthday and it will cost $200 to fix...
