    Hey guys, new user here.

    What is the best method in cleaning the macbook screen? And the same for the macbook keyboard and palm rest?

    I used to have a black laptop, now it is white, so i can see a lot more stuff lol

    thanks for the help :D

    For the screen use the black cloth that came with the macbook.
    If you don't have it you can use the leather "smammie" style towels sold
    at Wal*Mart. Chamois cloth.

    By the way, the original Mac one, the black one, is machine washable for those who didn't know.
    If you have neither, use windex and a paper towel. Amonia free or whatever.

    For the palm rest and keyboard, a lightly damp Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works absolute wonders.

    some say a 50/50 mixture of rubbing alcohol and water works good.

    I glued a cotton ball to the head of a battery powered fan that had lost its blades to the cat. I generally find you can make the case look as good as new if you slightly dampen the cotton bud, then buff the machine one panel at a time.
