    K so i just bought a unibody macbook and that sucker scratches so easily. I was just cleaning the thing with a cleaning cloth and it scratched it

    there must of been something on it but still wtf!!!

    I find that pretty ridiculous to scratch so easily but its all good because were it scratched is where i rest the palms of my hands to type. Needless to say im throwing away this cleaning cloth.

    I was also wondering if its worth buying a external hard drive for the time machine program. It seems pretty worth it but how big should the hard drive be like 100GB?

    Also it seems that my battery seems to run out fast. I will just be browsing the internet and get maybe like 2-4 hours of battery on wifi and now im at a friends house and im plugged into the internet via ethernet cord and my battery display says i got 5 hours could that make such a big factor? When im on the bttery supply i put the brightness down to 4 lower than max.

    Depends on your drive size right now. Your Time Machine drive should ideally be about twice the size of your internal drive, so you have room for it to store back for a while.

    AirPort is a big drain on the battery. Brightness is also a factor, though not as significant on LED screens like yours has. Also, if the fan is running, that is another huge drain on battery.

    Get a skin? IDK what to do about the scratches, on my cell phones screen I use toothpaste to polish it out with the abrasives in it.

    I thought he was talking about the plastic ones(not a big mac fan) how the hell you scratching aluminum to be visible? normally it just best barely noticeable scratches and they all just shine so you don't notice.

    Like duct tape? Good with a razor blade? I would order a case of 6 rolls of a cool pattern, I would recommend the pixel camo, and then duct tape the entire thing and cut out the ports and air vents. When I was in college and we had the school supplied laptops(they were nice but we always got them mixed up) so we made different patterns on the cases.
