    I have the Unibody 15" MacBook Pro, I've had it pretty much since it was first released and throughout that time it has gotten extremely dirty. The monitor has a few splotches of stuff and a lot of dust on the surface, the keyboard is just looks really dirty and underneath my keyboard is just full of crap. What products do you recommend to clean the MacBook Pro and any types of "skins/guards" i could use to cover the keyboard and the area around it?

    Also, when I brought my MacBook Pro the second spongy thing on the bottom Enter key wasn't there, I sort of just ignored it and thought it was a new design or something lol, I looked at a friends keyboard and the key wasn't sloped, thats when I figured that my keyboard was messed up. I was wondering if I took it to an Apple Store I could get the Enter key fixed, I have AppleCare and I'm willing to pay.

    Dirty display: moist glasses cleaner

    Dirty keyoard: google "macbook keyboard skin"

    As for the crippled key: Why should you pay for the repair?!

    Also, get a can of compressed air and spray it down occasionally. Im kind of OCD about dust.

    Thanks everyone for the fab replies!

    Don't worry brasscat my house is clean enough (Not because I clean it though, because other people do lol), its just my MacBook Pro thats a state lol.

    Also, Flatfoot, I thought I may of needed to pay as I doubt they will believe that it was like that when I first brought it.

    I guess I'll need to go buy some stuff so this doesn't happen again :p.

    -Thanks again for the quick replies,
