What would you do?
Have a new MBP that is about 10 days old that I got from Microcenter, which has a 15 day return window.
Had an accident that other day picking up a coaster. It slipped out of my hand and ended up ricocheting off the screen, leaving a couple of small hairline scratches. They aren't terrible, but noticeable.
Should I attempt to return it and if they accept it upon inspection roll with it? Or would that be gaming the system, and I should just take my lumps and consider this a lesson learned about being careful.
FWIW....I'm leaning heavily towards the latter, just trying to figure out if I'm over-thinking this.

BTW, it's very doubtful that you could get away with "gaming the system", anyway.
Just be thankful it's not the retina MBP.

If it's a no-questions-asked return policy, then return it. Heck, even if it's not, return it. The company will more than likely sell it as refurbished or as a display model anyway. On the other hand, if the hairline scratches are tolerable then keep it. Remember, it's your device and your decision. Good luck and have a great night.
UPDATE: I forgot to answer your question - What would I do? If I've had the device more than 2 days, that would mean I'd have it set up exactly how I want it and unless the scratches were a distraction and nothing else was wrong with it, I'd keep it. But that's Just Me, D
