    I am obsessive about caring for my things well, and my new PowerBook will be no exception. I have noticed that while there aren't SCRATCHES that appear... the surface gets blemished... but can be sort of cleaned... it's odd and I can't describe it.

    I know they make stuff to clean iBooks - do they have anything for AlBooks? Also, what is the best thing to use to clean the screen?

    i just use a slightly damp cloth to clean mine as per Apple's instructions, works effectively and is simple enough

    yeah, wet rag will clean those blemishes right off. i bought a bottle of iKlear. it's kind of like a wax i guess. it helps keep the blemishes from forming in the first place. i apply it on a weekly basis. i am probably just as obsessive as you are about keeping the powerbook looking like it just came out of the box. and believe me...it does.

    I do as well. It can be a bit pricey, but compared to the cost of a PB, it is a worthwhile expense. They have it at the Apple Store.

    I love iKlear! I got a bottle of it from Fry's for $10. I've used it religiously for about 6 months and I still have over half the bottle. :D VERY AWESOME STUFF!

    iKlear.

    Buy the $25 bottle from the Apple Store. It includes a micro-fiber cloth for use with the LCD. It'll keep your display in tip-top and the blemishes off the exterior.

    Well we have overwhelmingly established iKlear as an effective solution - therefore I feel compelled to pick up a bottle when I am in King of Prussia this weekend - it's just an excuse to drop in to the Apple Store.

    Thank you for your answers. That was great.

    P.S. How about the screen?

    iKlear is a must. Got all my cleaning goodies at ShaggyMac. Good selection & fast service.

    Should I buy the kit or the bottle? What comes in the kit besides the bottle?

    While this topic is open, what are people using to clean the keyboard, and the dust that gets underneath? Is compressed air good or bad?
