I have an old MacBook aluminum laptop that got dropped on a corner. I'd like to beat the dent out of it so the lid will close properly. It's some kind of drawn aluminum can...I think... Model number suggests it's not the titanium model.
Here's what it looks like.
Hope the image links work.
I can, with considerable difficulty, remove the guts and the casting around the battery hole. But there are still some brackets welded to the aluminum on both sides of the corner.
I can fabricate some wooden forms to recreate the corner. First question is, "should I try to press it into shape, or ballistically deform it with a hammer?"
It's not worth spending any money to do this. It's just a learning opportunity.
