Mine has been scratched since about day three of ownership. Not extremely bad but it is marked exactly were the first row of keys are on the keyboard (Space bar row). I harvested two rubber "bumpers" from an old laptop and stuck them on the screen upper corners to prevent further problems. Never did have the patients for placing and aliening that cloth before closing the lid. This work nicely for me, to bad I had not thought of it before the scratches, but at least they are not noticeable during use.
