    Some people have body chemistry that discolors the aluminum.  You may be one of them.


    I suggest that you wear some type of wrist band to prevent further discoloration.  Experiment with household cleaners, but do not use abrasives.

    Looks more like Palm wear then anything else, from the pictures you posted.


    And what Ogelthorpe posted, Body Chemistry reacting with the aluminum. In either case there isn't much you can do about what is already there. Aluminum wears just like everything else and if it's body chemistry not much you can do about that except to put some type of plastic film shield on the palm rest areas.
