    Hi all. My gf just turned 21 and got a bunch of Apple stuff for her birthday. Yes, I am jealous. one of the things she got was iKlear. It is for cleaning Apple products, and claims to be the only cleaning product recommended by Apple Tech Support, among other things. Go them. In any case, on the back it says it cleans for powerbooks: LCD screen / Case / Keyboard / DVD's. Her question was, does this include the trackpad? I don't know if it counts as part of either the keyboard or case, so I told her not to do it until I heard from you guys. Thanks for helping, you guys always pull through for me,

    (should actually be Jo Gyo Nim now, but can't really change my handle)

    I'm sure it'll be fine. I clean my whole laptop with a damp cloth, including the trackpad....

    iKlear works great for cleaning my PowerBook (Titanium). Cleans every part of it: screen, case, keyboard, and trackpad. Just make sure you really wipe the screen of thoroughly or it can leave streaks. But when done properly it's an excellent cleaner. Then again, I suspect warm water with a spot of mild detergent wouldn't harm anything either.

    i just use a damp cloth and it doe the job well. i know you are not meant to use water on on the track pad but i've hever had problems with a slightly damp cloth. i wouldn't use detergent or anything on the track pad and screen though.

    on a slightly related note i think i got a tiny drop of perfume on my ipod screen and it etched away a little clouded circle :(.

    I also think that iKlear is a great product to clean the entire PowerBook, iBook, and LCD. My first purchase of iKlear was at Macworld NY 2002.

    awesome, thanks to everyone for the help. I'll tell her it's fine to use it on the trackpad.
