Alright, I've had my new SR Blackbook since 2-3 days before Thanksgiving -- so roughly a month or so. The keys and touchpad are SHINY and it is highly annoying. I make sure my hands are not greasy, I wash my hands before use most of the times, and I wipe it down with a micropad notebook cleaner & spray. it is impossible to have the laptop look nice. it is always smudgy, and the shiny keys are REALLY getting to me. I wish under applecare I could exchange it, even if I didn't get m $150 because of the color. wish I went white.
