    Hi folks - new to the forums here but thought somebody out there could help. I have a new Macbook and there's already some greasy looking spots next to the trackpad (from before I got my bluetooth mouse). Any tips for cleaning it? TIA

    70% rubbing alcohol used sparingly. Others prefer Mr. Clean magic erasers; again with sparing liquid. Make sure the computer is off and the battery is out and make sure your cleaning job is dry before booting back up.

    Also consider getting one of those palm-guards & trackpad protectors. I got my Moshi a couple of months after getting my MacBook. Just couldn't stand seeing the unsightly marks on the trackpad. :rolleyes:

    Cool wallpaper! That's the same one that I'm using too! :D
