Hello,
I just made the switch to Mac- and im loving it. But one question- Ive had my MacBook now for a week, and yellow patches are coming up where I rest my palms on the deck, as well as on the trackpad. I work in biotech and was wearing latex gloves, and i think some of the residue may have gotten on it. That and I love cheetos.
Is there any sure-fire cleaning solutions that can be used to keep my MacBook nice and white?

To help with the yellowing, maybe you should wash your hands before you use your MacBook every time... I dunno.

You could also put contact paper on the surface.. that's what I did to my PowerBook to prevent the pitting.

But I stand by iKlear. It cleans real good. I got a bottle of it for $10 from fry's and a shammy from the dollar store.

I second the iKlear and also got it from the same place. :p I use iKlear on my iBook and it works wonders.

I've used toothpaste and a toothbrush a few times on my iBook and it comes out very nicely...and I hear those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are great for anything but I haven't tried one yet on my iBook. Just be careful around the track pad.
