I had a dark spot on my ibook that I could never get off, I even tried bleach. what did work awesomely though, is a pink rubber eraser, from a pencil or one of those bigger pink erasers. good luck.

If you can find them (they seem to be hard to find lately), the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works wonders on the iBook (and many other surfaces!)...Just don't get the trackpad wet, as I understand it, that leads to badness.

They also work on cars too (don't ask) :eek:

hey thanks for the ideas. i used to pencil eraser but my only problem with that it that there were lines afterward. im sure i wouldnt have that problem if i used a bigger one. but i got rid of those with the cd doctor scratch pad. and that worked really good. its looks brand new.
