    Hey guys, I have a 15R3 and I love that the body doesn't collect too much fingerprints but I do notice it getting dirty. What are the best cleaning products for the body, keyboard, trackpad, screen, etc? Do most of you just use water and compressed air? Any tips or tricks?

    Use microfiber cloth to clean it.

    Microfiber cloth [and some alcohol: DO NOT USE IT FOR RUBBERIZED PALM REST CLEANING] for external cleaning, compressed air for internals. Keyboard can be tricky when food or small objects are stuck in between keys, so you might want to use cotton swabs.

    DONT USE ALCOHOL!!!!!!!

    it will eat through the soft touch finish in time. Never use alcohol for rubberized surfaces!

    Is the finish in the AW15 rubberized? I've been using it for years in my Acer laptop, no issues. But the finish in mine isn't rubberized.

    The palmrest is rubberized. it is mixed with another coating so it will take some more time. but eventually it will create airbubbles under it and after you can wipe the coating straight off.

    just damp cloth will do the job fine. warm damp cloth will be more effective
