    I have a 2.1ghz White Macbook, and the outside is getting to the point where I can't stand even looking at it. How can I clean it and take the small surface scratches away? I've heard that PlastX works (I can get it from an automotive shop).

    I was just wondering what everyone else does when their macbook gets scratched on top and they want to clean it?

    I normally use a little rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. I'll have to try the Magic Eraser if I ever get one.

    I've heard this is extremely bad for the outside of the macbook.

    Doesnt that eat away at the plastic?

    The Mr Clean Magic Eraser is great for the keyboard area/top case.

    Since it's a mild abrasive, I would be hesitant to use it on the outside of a MacBook for fear of scratching the case.

    For the outside, I've had okay luck with the iKlear products.
