    Where I rest my finger on the track pad and also on the right side there are dark spots from my hands being on the computer. I've only had it for about a month!!! IT SUCKS. Does anyone know how to get these off besides rubbing alcohol, CLR or electronics or anti bacterial wipes?? I've tried all of those. Nothing works. UGH>:mad:

    Read my second link! nail polish remover may damage the finish!

    BE CAREFUL!

    Nail Polish Remover (NON-ACETONE) - some users report improvement and lightening and/or removal of stains
    Nail Polish Remover (Acetone) - DO NOT ATTEMPT - an unfortunate few users have tried using acetone based products to remove the stains to catastrophic results, creating severe damage to the macbook surface plastics!

    I hope Apple can respond to these issues, and repair them free of charge.

    I have a black MB; and unless I wear surgical gloves, my fingers leave grease marks everywhere.
    I only had it for couple of weeks, but 3M microfiber wipe in luke warm water (wring out the water though) normally gets the grease out right away. It won't protect it.
    As for the screen, I use Plexus.
