    When MacBooks first revisions were released, there was a lot of problems with the coloring on the white macbook. Blackbooks had the problem with the black matte finish wearing off.

    Are these still a problem with a Macbooks? I'm thinking between White Macbook or a Blackbook, but I prolly go with the white one (it's the apple color ;) ).

    I got a white MacBook in June, with the revised finish. It still marks (dull grey where my wrists rest and on the trackpad button), but nowhere near as bad as the early ones. Still a pain though.

    Can you clean the discolouration/stain, though? The problem isn't the discolouration. You'd basically expect that since it's white. If it doesn't come off, it's a problem.

    Right now, if you buy a new Macbook, it's not a problem, or at least I haven't seen any more mention of it.

    I've tried to clean mine with the majority of products/solutions but no luck. I haven't tried the Magic Eraser though, that may do it.

    I must say, it is starting to bother me!

    Its not a "stain" its just the rubbing on the plastic chaning the texture and rubbing the plastic down. You cannot remove or clean smoothed plastic.

    With the old iBooks you can remove the "stains" with rubber gum, does it work with the new Macbooks?

    Anyone have the Blackbook? In the beginning it had the problem that the black matte finish would wear off very easily f.ex if you scratch the surface with your nail, is this still a problem?

    Try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on the new MacBooks and see if that helps. I know it works wonders on the iBook.

    Hang on, why would I want to remove plastic? It's a stain - it's dirty and it doesn't come off. If it was simply a case of it being 'rubbed down' you would still be able to clean it.
