How to fix a warped Macbook Air?

So I accidentally dropped my Macbook Air the other day and while catching it mid-air, I banged it against the side table. It resulted in some dents and bruises. When I closed the lid, the edges are already un-even.

So this is what I did to fix the dent.

The solid, aluminum unibody of the Macbook Air is pretty tough. However, since the edges are very thin, a concentrated impact can leave some bruises.

And, after banging it again against the dashboard of my car, it actually made several cuts into the dashboard. Still, the Macbook Air lives!

    :) I think sir yuga appreciates the corrections. Ginagawa ng ibang regular readers niya yung pag-point out ng small errors… ginaya ko lang kasi I think it’s a good way of helping out the blog owner, as long as we don’t say it in a nasty way, diba?

    Kasi busy si sir yuga para i-double or triple-check yung post kaya na-appreciate niya kung may ibang mag-p-point-out nung errors sa post. :) Para pwede niya i-edit and ayusin. Don’t you agree?
