    I've started to noticed in the light that my laptop gets really....oily I guess? I'm guessing it's from my hands and such. So I was wondering what's the best way to clean this? Prevent?

    Also how to clean the screen? I have a few smudges here and there.

    If anyone could give me a heads up that would be great.

    Best way to prevent a dirty/oily laptop is to wash your hands before use and keeping it in a clean environment.

    I honestly recommend Radtech Omincleanz (get the optex polishing cloth with it) over iKlear when it comes to cleaning the screen. For cleaning the rest of the laptop, shut it down, take a warm damp facecloth and wipe it down. If your MacBook has a removable battery, remove it before wiping it down. Let it sit for a few minutes to dry and put the battery back in (if needed) and enjoy.

    I just spit on my t-shirt and rub it down...j/k :)

    I too use iKlear. It seems to keep the smudges down to a minimum.
