Does the silver too? Anyone?

I guess I'm blind because all I see in those photos is close-ups of connectors. Those connectors have the bare metal, I don't see any evidence of the paint itself coming off. Seems like a whole thread about absolutely nothing.

It looks like the wear is on the edge of the body where the USB/HDMI cover sits. As that edge is very sharp I guess it's not surprising. Not sure what could cause that wear though. Personally I've yet to remove the rubber cover to access those ports. I can certainly see how it could could rub off the paint though. Anything that is that pointed is bound to be more susceptible.

I agree but the "wear" area is a microscopic sliver right in the connector slot itself unless people are mistaking the silver at the base of the connector. Way out of proportion for the amount of complaints in that thread.
