    I recently purchased a new 24 inch Apple iMac. It's my first :apple: Apple Computer and I am very impressed. Just wondering if anyone out there knows how to pop off the keys on the new iMac keyboards to clean the internals of the keyboard? I don't want to pull the keys off if I'm not doing it correctly and end up breaking my keyboard. Can someone give a detailed explanation on how to remove the keys? :confused:

    Unless you take it apart, I don't think you can take the Keys off.

    I use Dust-Off (Compressed Air).

    It's a pretty tight fit between the keys and the casing... I wouldn't expect much dirt/dust to get in there within the first few weeks of use. Maybe after three years or something... but wanting to clean right now seems rather foolish.
