    I have an old MBP (late 2007) that has gotten quite dirty, and I would like to thoroughly clean it. What is the best way to do it? Are there certain cleaning products that I should use? The internal speakers to the side of the keyboard has gotten various particles stuck in their grating. What is the best way to clean this area and get these particles out? Thanks a lot.

    Power it on and submerge it in water for 30-40 seconds. Towel dry. Repeat as necessary.



    On a more serious note, a vacuum cleaner with hose attachment should do the trick, I think.

    i just get the cloth that the computer came with (or iPhone) wet, ring it out and wipe down my computer.

    Target practice using a machine gun an inch away from your computer. The air pressure from the bullets leaving the muzzle should blast all the dirt off. Just be sure not to shoot the computer.



    (Actually, the vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment idea should do.)

    If you're going to use compressed air, amake sure it's the version that doesn't have "goo" - stuff in it, other than air. a vacuum should clean most . Damp cloth from plain old water should do the rest.
