cleaning the keyboard?
 
my buddy who just bought a new iBook 12 was outside today and he told me a gust of wind blew sand all over his brand new iBook and got underneath the keyboard... not good. so he's wondering what is the easiest way to clean the keyboard without damaging anything. I said use compressed air to try to get it out but.... ideas?

If it was my IBook I would open it and set it on it's side so anything blown out falls down, then I would loosen the keyboard and spray everything with compressed air.

Well since you can lift up the keyboard, I'd do that.

Pull down the 2 latches next to the esc and f12 keys, make sure the screw-latch under the num. lock indicator is released and lift up the keyboard.

Then carefully try to shake, blow the sand out without it going all over the iBook...

good deal he did just that and got it out (well the majority of the sand at least), he's a happy camper and feels better.

Glad to be of service, tell him to enjoy his 'book!
