Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2006 6:06 AM (in response to DonSqueak1981)I am scared ! My MB is only 1 day old so no problems at the moment. Shieldzone is on the way $50 odd so I hope this helps.
I think it is good that Apple must have seen the discussions. The MacBook is beautiful and I really want it to stay that way...
I, like many others have been impressed with the ipod and tempted away from a cheaper black windows laptop (sorry notebook!)

Hoping for problem-solving and sincerely,
Probably because there are pages upon pages of messages on the topic with no real solution.
And yet, I offer another. ;>)
Try this stuff:
If the link is broken, go to http://www.officedepot.com and do a search for "Sanford Expo". I used it a couple of years back to clean some cigarette smoke stained telephones that electronically were still useful for our new smoke-free offices. The phones were white, but stained to a yucky creamed yellow. Sanford Expo removed it.
If anyone is in the Houston - Conroe - Huntsvillel I-45 coverage area, and you have a stained MacBook, I'd love to meet up with you and see if this cleaner will help. My white MacBook is still stain-free, for some reason. Below is a descriptor from Office Depot:
* Tough but gentle cleanser removes board stains. Tough enough to get rid of shadows, ghostings, stains and permanent ink from dry-erase boards — gentle enough not to harm the board.
* Spray bottle for maximum board coverage. Just squirt some in each area of the board for quick, even distribution of cleaner. Handy palm-sized spray bottle is comfortable to hold.
I would propose doing just a very small area on the stain. Cost is only $3.50 or so for the spray bottle.MacBook - 4H621, Mac OS X (10.4.6), G4 Tower, Atari ST with Mac Plus emulator, Dell 8400 Tower, Dell D600 laptop
Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2006 8:49 AM (in response to Larry_Rymal)I have checked and there's no way to get that product from Spain, and the online shop doesn't ship out of the USA
Still, it seems like some solutions work for some people, others don't.
I still think it's a manufacturing issue and a problem with apple's QCiBook G4 14in, Mac OS X (10.4)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2006 9:32 AM (in response to Jose M Olaya)Spain? Well, ok...
Look for any white board cleaner that also is able to remove permanent marker writings. The key is any phrase that indicates it is gentle on the material.
Surely Europe has a similiar product. Office supply store??? What about Viking Direct? Surely, Spain has office supply stores:

Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2006 9:45 AM (in response to infinite vortex)MacFixIt got the info from here! grinnnn Indeed, much of the MacFixIt info about staining and heat has come from the messages here.
Regarding a Spanish solution, here's a description on the Sanford Expo bottle:

Can you tell me what that liquid contains?
2-Butoxy Ethanol/acetate, isopropy alcohol. The contents doesn't list the percentages.
We use it all the time on our white marker boards, plastic furniture pieces, electronic equipment and screens. Hasn't hurt anything.
