I've had my X380 for only a few weeks now and I noticed it's already getting scratched from being in stand mode. I had an S1 Thinkpad Yoga for years and it never developed scratches from being in stand mode. I noticed that the rubber feet on the palmrest are not the high point but the area below the trackpad is and that's why it's getting scratched.
I was thinking if I could get some more of the little rubber feet on the bottom of the palmrest I could maybe double them up to make them taller, but I can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know if these can be bought on their own? Or maybe another suggestion to prevent the scratching? I've temporarily stuck some black rubber strips on the feet to make them taller, but it doesn't look that great.

If anyone else is having this problem I have found a solution. I found some little rubber feet on Amazon that fit exactly into the spot of the existing feet but are slightly taller. The feet can be found here: Silicone Rubber Feet Set 10mm(L) x 2.5mm(W) x 1mm(H) Self Adhesive 10pcs [RB183] I just peeled off the old feet (which look like they may be molded into the chassis, so not designed to be replaced) and stuck the new feet in their place. They now sit high enough to prevent the palm rest from scratching when in stand mode.
Palm rest won't scratch anymore:
