    For the screen, keyboard, outside, etc.

    For the screen I use iKlear. They give out single samples at their booth every year at Macworld. After walking by a dozen or so times a day every day for 4 days at the show every year, I have enough to last me all year (I have at least a dozen still around from last year). $15 for a box of them is well worth it too.

    on my white macbook, i use a mr clean magic eraser to get rid of the yellowing. on the screen, i'll use a slightly damp microfiber cloth. on the plastic case, i'll use some rubbing compound and a microfiber - but it still scratches like crazy

    Even diluted alcohol can be a bit harsh on the laptops screen coating. Should be just fine on other parts of the computer.

    I have a bottle of Zeiss lens cleaner that I use for just about everything. It's awesome, and it's designed for all sorts of coated optics so I don't worry about it hurting anything.
