Is there anyway I can clean under my keyboard for my MBP? I've noticed some dust/dirt/crumbs buildup underneath my keyboard and I'd like to know if there's any safe way I could clean it out. It's not that noticeable, I just figured putting so much money into this machine I should keep it in tip top condition.

You might try using compressed air. The small canisters can be purchased at most stores where computer equipment is sold.

A method that is fairly effective is to turn your MBP upside down with the keyboard exposed and use the compressed air to blow dust and other objects from around the keys. Of course be careful not to drop your machine while doing this! It helps to have someone give you a hand by firmly holding on to the machine while you do the cleaning.

Regards.
