    I've had my macbook pro since oct of 2006 and I will spray compressed air in there every once in a while. I noticed there's some gunk built up in a few areas and was wondering what other ways to be the best way to clean down there.

    Is it easy to just pop off every key? Haven't tried this before cause I didn't want to break the hinges.

    On my PowerBook the keys popped off on one side only, the other side then slid out. So try lifting from the side, not the middle. Recommend you start on one of the keys not used much just in case!

    Found a guide here, it looks like you can just pop them off and back on again (with care). There are quite a few tips in the comments section.
