    I've inherited an old Apple Cinema Display - aluminium model. It has what looks like rust spots on it which I'd like to try and remove - attached image shows some of them.

    Any recommendations as to how to proceed without damaging the aluminium? They don't just wipe off with a damp cloth so I guess I'll need to try something slightly abrasive but not sure if it is just an aluminium surface 'finish' or solid aluminium?

    You could try using lighter fuel. I never tried it with a Cinema Display but it doesn't damage the aluminum body of my macbook pro.

    I use it for many electronics, because it evaporates really fast.

    Be Careful! i never tried it with a cinema display myself.

    If those are scratches, you can't make them go away. Cleaner perhaps, but if you buff with #0000 steel wool or something like it, the alu will get glossy in place of the scratch. The original surface is a very fine texture coat.
