Is there anyway to lighten the scratch that my son put on my screen? I know I won't be able to completely remove it, but this sticks out like a sore thumb and is driving me crazy. It don't feel like a deep scratch at all, but it is extremely visible when it is on a white backround.

At work we use pledge, yup furniture polish, to remove scratches from laptop tfts. Your mileage will vary depending on how deep the scratch is.

I just realized that I might have misread your post, if you meant the actual tft is scratched, I'd use pledge. If you're talking about the white outside casing, Brasso metal polish works pretty good.

Yea, the actual screen itself has a minor scratch on it. I will give pledge a shot and see if that works, if not I will give this iKlear Apple Polish Kit from Apple Store a shot.
