    So I'm gonna clean up my MBP you know dirt and stuff and try and make it look new. I have to take the power adaptwr in because it is like frayed. So what else should i do to give it a nice cleaning? (Excluding dent and couple scratches) Even stuff to speed up the Hard Drive and OS. And my parents suprised me on Christmas Day with a 60 GB PS3 so I have money left so I might by a G4 Desktop. Any reccomendations? (iMac, Mac Mini w/ old crappy CRT, or PowerMac) I don't want to just buy an external keyboard and muse for the MBP.

    This thread might be helpful to some people :)

    Get iKlear and a micro-fibre cloth, it will have it looking like new in no time :)

    How could the MBP be so dirty so soon? They haven't been out that long. :confused:

    I've had mine since July and it's just dirt from being out of the house.

    iKlear and Klear Screen are siblings from the same manufacturer. You might want to edit you post to remove my picture; we only need one. ;)

    A damp Microfiber cloth works well too with no chemical risk. Just be careful of the Microfiber quality. I have done tests on CD's and found some actually scratch.

    iKlear and their micro-fibre cloth--the way to go! Try to buy the special kit from the Apple stores that also comes with the mico-fibre keyboard cover for when you close your MacBook (protects the screen from the oil and dirt on the keyboard), it's useful and a good bargain (the keyboard cover sells for $10 alone)...

    i find iKlear can be a bit inconsistent in the amount of spray that comes out and therefore can result in some streaking or slightly different looking areas after i wipe the screen down. overall it is pretty good, but i generally go to water as a first resort.
