    First, I'd like to just say: FIRST POST!

    Next, I wanted to say that I just recently switched from Vista to Leopard and it's amazing, I can't believe I ever owned a Windows OS.

    Anyways, I was wondering even thought there are probably hundreds of topics like this... how do you maintain the appearance of your white MacBook?

    Probably every other day I take a monitor wipe on my desk and wipe where my hands lay and the trackpad and clicker.

    I decided to just upgrade the HD myself. I'm not a big fan of the black one. :rolleyes:

    I just bought a bluetooth mouse. Kinda nice.

    Search for one of the hundreds of other threads. The computer won't get that dirty, otherwise just use a damp paper towel and some elbow grease.

    The "Eraser" a cleaning sponge (by Mr Clean or an off-brand) that has a semi-abrasive additive but feels soft to the touch is great for cleaning the greasy palm-marks off the palm-rests.

    You'll be surprised just how clean the rest of the machine stays.

    I don't. There is so much hair, dirt and grease in this thing that I gave up trying to keep it clean.

    Still runs like a champ.
