So I got a little super glue on my macbook pro 2012 (don't ask), I wiped off most of it but theres still a white residue. Theres a little area on top of the black bezel and a little bit on like 3 keys. Anyone have any good easy ways to take it off easily?
thanks!

Have you tried "Googling" on this topic? I'm sure you may get some ideas here...but I don't think too many of us are super glue experts.

In fact...it took me about 3 seconds to get the "official" (from the Super Glue website)..."How to remove Super Glue" document:

Removing Super Glue | Super Glue Corporation

Of course you don't want to use anything that will make the situation worse. Especially on the plastic areas of your MacBook Pro if there happens to be glue there.

Acetone (nail polish remover) is the usual go but I would not use that anywhere near the MBP. If no other option maybe a smidgin on a clean cloth and wipe.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
