    Hi guys, am new to the forum, my only other apple product is an Ipod touch, I have also owned various other Ipod's.

    I want to change from PC to my first mac, a white macbook.

    But I was wondering if the discolouration problem on earlier models is still apparent on the newest version, even though they are not that old, has anyone experienced this problem?

    i am unsure... but i kno that there is a thread about this already and maybe just if you go to like the 2nd page of threads you will find it.

    my white macbook is just about 2 months old. no discoloring thus far.

    If it's white, it will discolor. Apple hasn't made any stain proof update to their computers AFAIK.

    My late 2007 Macbook doesn't suffer from discoloration. My flat mate has a 1st gen Macbook and the palmrests are yellow.

    Ok so if it happens i guess its not covered by apple care plan?

    Is there any advice you could give as to the best form of protection such as an invisible shield / film for the palm rest area and whether that would be needed?

    i thought it was covered by apple care:confused: thats what the people at the store said (a apple store)

    I do not have it, but apparently the moshi palm guard is good ;)

    You can clean a whitebook with a mr clean magic eraser, or the target brand equivalent. You'll need to use some pressure, but it works great.
