There is a noticeable depression to the right of the trackpad of my macbook pro. This is either because I have been resting my hand there far too long, or, more likely, because at one or more times I have slammed it there with a fist in irritation, and you know, after a while even a puny human can bend relatively thin aluminium.

It's built in obsolescence from that madman Jobs - at some point you will return to your computer and find the whole trackpad has been absorbed into it necessitating buying a new one.

I was under the impression that Macs were invulnerable. No?

They appear not to beinvulnerable to the fist of righteous justice, or at least the fist of midnight application failure annoyance.

It still works mind you, though I'm not sure I could get a disc into the optical drive any more. Actually the casing on this MBP has all sorts of dents and gaps in it, quite possibly because I've been putting it in random bags and knocking the bags on things, or that people have been trying to pull the Kensington lock out while I've been away.

This guy doesn't have a problem with wear and tear but his solution is the same one for it:
