How should you clean your MacBook Pro?

Mac users are supposed to be vain and perhaps this question vindicates that assumption – I'm talking about physically cleaning the machine.

"I use a dry cloth to clean mine and don't use any chemicals, they just scare me with my MacBook Pro.

This is a guide to cleaning laptop monitors that I found:

How to Clean Laptop Computer Screen"

I use baby wipes to clean the non-screen surfaces, including the keyboard. I use a lint-free cloth for the screen, and do not use any cleaner products. This isn't limited to my Macbook though, I do the same for cleaning the outside surfaces of all my computers.

Rubbing alcohol and cotton balls. A very small amount does the trick, and use a few dry cotton balls to "buff" the streaks away once it's clean. Works on the screen and the case, and seems to be entirely safe in both cases. It has not affected the finish or look on any of my machines in the past 8 years.

Rubbing alcohol and q-tips seem to work on the logic board if you're desperate.

By the way, for hand grime buildup on MacBook [Pro|Air] palm-rests, the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (technically melamine resin foam, and also sold under names like BASF Basotect, "3M Scotch Brite Easy Erasing Pad", and others) works wonders. If someone mentioned an eraser, hopefully this is what they were talking about, as opposed to a pencil eraser.
