Some MacBooks plagued by discoloration - Page 2

post #41 of 47
Hey guys. That's just not true that this is an apple flaw.

Don't you remember, that apple recently filed a patent called "CAMELION"

____
Apple has attempted to patent the concept of the chameleonic computer - a machine whose shell changes colour at the user's whim.
____

So these Macbooks have been accindently prematurely escaped the skunkworks lab.

Wait ... maybe it's a MMB - the MoodMacBook. It shift colors depending on how pissy you are at Apple ... seeing as how they're doomed and seem to shit all over everything now

So THIS is how Apple used their color-changing enclosure patent.

Mine's going blue... I kid you not. Right in the middle of the trackpad button and some small patches to the left of it on the edge of the case...

My first thought was biro ink or something that may have got on my hands, except I havn't used a biro, or any kind of pen since owning this machine!

I've tried cleaning it with a few different cleaning products (Mr Muscle etc...) nothing's shifting it...

No orange yet though! What's going on.....

I don't have a MacBook yet, but am planning to buy one in the next month or so. This issue concerns me greatly.

It sounds to me like the oil, etc. from people's hands is getting into the plastic and reacting with it. Different people ooze different stuff so it may only affect people with "harsh" oils.

Has anyone heard of anything you can put on the MacBook to protect the plastic? Either plastic sheets, or something like furniture polish, or 303.

I would try waxing it. It's cheap enough that if it doesn't work, you're not really out anything, plus you can use it on your car anyway. Other than that, when I get my MacBook, I'm going to find a clear plastic film. Probably be able to get that from my local decal dealer.

Just use your basic kitchen contact paper.
