But seriously, Apple better fucking do something about this
wow, I was going to grab my macbook next week, but fuck that.
I haven't had the problem in my three months (knock on wood) but check this:
chron·ic P Pronunciation Key (krnk)
Of long duration; continuing: chronic money problems.
Lasting for a long period of time or marked by frequent recurrence, as certain diseases: chronic colitis.
Subject to a habit or pattern of behavior for a long time: a chronic liar.
I think it's funny how potheads (not saying it's you) use the term "chronic" to describe pot. The term means "of long duration", "continuing", "frequent recurrance"; and is most often used to describe *negative* effects. And then in the next sentence they can spew some bullshit about it not being addictive
same shit happened to my ibook. i use it about 6 hours a day though, so i expect it to look used. call me crazy.
so what I'm seeing is a bunch of dirty basturds that never wash their hands are complaining about thier Mac Book getting dirty? Must be an apple problem.
that finish is just matte painted plastic, heavy use rubs it off clean or dirty. my ibook finish rubbed off where my palms touch, but i agree with you. its not apples fault that someone uses their laptop for several hours a day every day.
I've used my powerbook every day since I got it back in October, and have had no problems. Then again, I clean my powerbook at least once a week so it won't get dirty. I'm willing to bet these are the same people with funk built up on their desktop keyboards as well.
So you guys are saying that if you wash your hands, this won't happen? Those guys seem to think that the heat from the hands reacts with the plastic somehow I really don't think they are all "Dirty"
i have this shit on my ibook
i used it a LOT though - and i think i worked on my car and used it one day too .. doh
your powerbook is also made of aluminum and not matte coated plastic. i am pretty much the biggest clean freak that there is
so essentially the finish on the palm rest is wearing off and revealing the biege plastic below?
it almost looks like a sun stain
digg posted a solution for that problem today. its seems that if you use non asctone nail polish, it removes the stains
link for proof?
Aren't iBooks clear plastic that are painted white on the inside, just like all iPods? If that's the case, there is no finish to rub off.
naw, thats only on the shell. around the keyboard its just a flat matte finish, and i have rubbed it off. ill post pics later.
so then, underneath the finish, the plastic is just plain yellow? No wonder nobody could "clean" it off.
what the fuck were they thinking @ Apple
the bottom is where people have started to post messages about using nail polish remover on macbooks. thankfully, I have a wireless mouse i use with my macbook
its like an off-white/beige color
