i have a white Apple laptop.

re dark smudges on the body of the mac, or a dirty screen, any particular cleaning fluids or anything anybody knows of that are suitable?

(i don't know if warm, soapy water is supposed to be a good idea.)

just wondering, thanks in advance for any help.

I believe Bill Gates recommends nitric acid.

this guy/girl seems to have the knowledge.

awh thanks!

nitric acid does feel more appropriate sometimes, then i look at my brother's temperamental Sony Vaio Acer thing - irritatingly skittish keyboard for one - and realise i'm lucky...
