Any good suggestions for removing a scratch from the brushed aluminum finish on the back of a new imac, case of a unibody, mac pro, etc?
I have an imac here that I have been asked to remove a scratch from the back of and I know from past experience that merely trying to sand/polish it off doesn't work out. Sanding tends to produce parallel scratching (which is hard to impossible to randomize) and doesn't rapidly remove the scratch. Polishing removes the scratch but leaves a mirror finish in contrast to the brushed look around it.
The only other option is to replace the rear housing. For which the relevant adjectives are "unpleasant", "involved", and "expensive".
