I'm thinking of purchasing a Blackbook, however, I'm afraid that my obsessive cleanliness traits will be a little overwhelming with all the grease that may end up on the machine from my oily fingers. How bad does sweat and oil show on the Blackbook? And if so, how difficult is it to clean, and how often does it need cleaning? Any input would be helpful. Thank you!

It shows quite alot more than it does on the white MacBook, but saying this it isnt too bad just be sure to have fairly clean hands when using the BlackBook.....(don't eat chips whilst browsing the net;) and you should be fine) Its also pretty easy to clean off the sweat marks with a damp cloth......

So the Black Macbook shows grease and dirt, and the White Macbook just turns brown.

Hmmm...decisions, decisions :rolleyes:

It takes it a little while (weeks/months/years, not days) to turn brown (weeks/months/years) , and then you can clean it when you start noticing it with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

My iBook has a dark spot from having my hand on it all the time. But I don't really care.

I used to have a Clean Room where I used my computers, but then realized that was stupid. If you are such a neat freak then why do you have such oily fingers? (or are you referring to sweaty fingers?)

Or maybe Apple will just use a superior finish on their products. Ah, yes, to dream ...

One of my city college instructors used to refer to oily fingers as "finger fat." :rolleyes:
