    Have noticed these scratch-type markings on my iBook that become shiny in the light. They are mostly located outside and around the key pad / mouse pad. Quite unsightly and disheartening since I do put a great deal of care into her.

    I've tried cleaning the markings off with a moist, soft cloth. However, nothing seems to take care of these strange markings.

    Has this happened with your iBook? . . .
    Or any ideas?

    Also, my hinge [?] seems to have much resistance to backward repositioning and makes a crinkle, crackle noise [lovely!]. Can you WD40 it?

    Much appreciation . . .
    Katelyne.

    oh wow, I have them too. I don't know what you should do except to just not worry about them :)

    Yeah, my iBook's a little scratched too. Nothing to worry about though. As for the WD40, I wouldn't get that stuff anywhere near my iBook. :)

    I've seen some cleaners for iPods and iBooks, including iCleaner. I personally don't know how well the products work, but it might be worth looking into.

    I have the exact same thing, to the left and right of the trackpad. Vertical markings that show up in bright light when looking at it from an angle. Oh well.

    I don't think you're talking about scratches. I have them and they look like they formed when the plastic was cooling down in the mold. I find them very hard to describe, but I wouldn’t call them scratches.
