This is a new thread to discuss how you keep the exterior of your powerbook looking good. This isn't about mainainance of the data on your computer, just the outside.

I know that my Powerbook can get quite grubby: I often eat lunch at Uni whilst watching movies or chatting, and it gets crap on it. I have been using a disposable cloth rag with a mixture of metho and water on it to clean the aluminium, screen and keyboard, but was wondering if there was something better?

Also, I don't know if the metho is good for the plastic covering on the LCD, and it often leaves streaks. What do you guys use to keep the pBooks looking good?

I don't eat over the top of mine for a start :P

MacMate has some good ideas on how to keep things clean :)

Apple recommend (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60446) simply a damp, lint-free cloth for cleaning LCD displays
