Hey guys...i just bought myself a "Magic Eraser Original" because i saw that it was recommended from other websites. However, i couldnt help the fact that there were some people who recommended not to use it because its a sponge and might scrap away the mac finish matte.

Please advise me ASAP. Thank you everyone.

Don't use it on the outside. The magic eraser is lsightly abrasive. The isnisde of a white macboo is pretty similiar aterial as the inside of the white, and the eraser works just fine on the white one. Try a small out-of-sight area first, maybe up by the screen and see if it damages the finish. That way the area is semi-unnoticable if it does in fact damage the finish.

I have actually used a magic eraser on my white Macbook to get rid of a large sharpie mark. It works great and gets it off, but with very minuscule marks left behind, because yes, it is slightly abrasive. I would say they look like really light scuffs, but that wasn't a problem for me as there were already a few scratches before.

I use it all the time on my black macbook. It doesn't leave any marks or anything. All it does is leave my macbook looking brand new

Yah, the light scuffs on mine are from me rubbing pretty hard to get the sharpie off, but it should be fine for your purpose.
