I hesitated to buy a white laptop for the obivious reason, but iBook users told me that even after four years their iBooks still looked great. Well, after just five weeks my MacBook has developed very faint stains on the mouse button and on either side of the palm rest which, try as I might, I simply cannot clean. For a full ten minutes I wiped and wiped to remove the staining but to no avail. This is incredibly frustrating. The thing is, right now, you can only see the staining in natural light, and only when you look at the MacBook at an angle, but if this gets any worse it's going to drive me around the bend. What really, really annoys me about this is that I've been washing my hands religiously before firing up the MacBook. The other thing that's annoying about this problem is that the actual keys themselves do not show any signs of staining. I use this MacBook 99% of the time for word processing, so my fingers are almost always on the keys - I would've thought that the keys would've stained first! Seriously, when I type, my hands are actually elevated off the palmrest itself, so it kind of surprises me that the palm rest and the mouse button have discolored but the keys have not. You know, I remember reading some stupid post about a guy claiming that his Nano scratched too easily - but, I thought at the time, the Nano is still functional, so what is this idiot complaining about? Yeah, I guess my MacBook is still functioning properly, and I probably shouldn't be complaining. But seriously, if I had known that this white laptop was going to stain so quickly and so easily I would not have bought it.
