    What's your reccomendation for cleaning out a Mac keyboard? Dust, crumbs and other stuff eventually accumulates within any keyboard no matter how much you try to avoid it.

    There's a really good site how to do this (I forget which). You just pop off two keys (I forget which) and open it up with the screws underneath. I did it once, very easy. Lots of help I know!

    Yeah, for some reason the pro keybpards get so much gunk under the clear plastic whichc you really can't get to.....unless you take it apart. Il probably try tomorow.(and hopefully succeed)

    Yikes...I just removed my left arrow key to see what would happen....I'm a bit afraid to remove the rest...

    Guess I'll do that if it gets REALLY bad...(keys sticking, etc)
