    Hey I recently bought a rmbp and love it. I tried cleaning it after 2 months of purchase as it did acquire a great deal of mess.

    I used the black cloth that comes with the macbook and made the tip wet with water and used that to clean the screen, which is very clean right now. Is this the safest way to go about cleaning the screen?

    For the keys/inner/outer body I used a cloth made for cleaning and did the same.

    Is this the correct approach to cleaning? I want to preserve the freshness of the laptop. Also I can't seem to clean the fan area as it is too small. Is there anything I can do about that or should I leave it?


    Also is there anything I should download for cleaning the OS itself.

    You are doing fine just make sure that the Cloth that you are using is not too wet. should be lightly moist, damp I would say so that water not dripping out of it. I don't think you need to worry about cleaning the Fan in the rMBP just leave it as it is..

    Cleaning the OS I am not quite sure what does that mean ? :rolleyes:

    As in to keep the system running smooth.

    Speaking of smooth, why is scrolling using the mousepad un-smooth? Also when I press F3 there some sort of small lag or choppiness. Is that normal?

    I have the new mbpr 8gb ram 256gb ssd.

    You did the right thing. A damp, micro fibre cloth is what I use on all my Apple stuff...no chemicals just a wipe over.

    I put my micro towels in the laundry with other cleaning cloths. No problem at all.
