2) Best thing to clean the aluminium unibody with?
3) Best ( cheapish) laptop sleeve designed for 13.3" macbook pro ( as my 13.3" case is a little big)?
4) Best/Cheapest 2 x 2gb ram for the macbook pro?

Ermm one from play.com
cheap one about £10

clean the screen with a good quality lint free cloth. I thought mine came with one, but they are easy to find and occassionally on the freebie section here
the body, clean with same thing, or just a tiny amount of water. it wont cause a problem so long as the cloth is only a little moist to get any dirt off. shouldnt need any chemicals. an over enthusiastic friend got too close to mine with a ball point and that just wiped off with a little water
Sleeve, I went for the GIMP (have a quick search on amazon) the 13" fits well, but i think it was about £20. it DOES move around a little as the pro's are that much smaller, but I dont feel its an issue for me. They are difficult laptops to find cases that fit exactly. If you can find somewhere to go and try, maybe pc world, currys, apple store, then order online to save yourself a bit!
Ram I dont really know, sorry. Accessories... I dont think it needs any as yet other than an external hard-drive of some sort so you can back up files. Oh and the more obvious addition of a usb stick (I got the titanium offer on here from mymemory of 16gb for £16, and there si the current 32gb one in the top rated deals at the moment. hope this helps

I just tried it!!!

NOT HAPPY :x:x:x

Is your macbook one with a glass panel in front of the screen? If so you'll probably want macbook (or iMac specific advice as most laptops have the (plastic) screen surface with no glass cover. You may just be able to clean it like any other glass, I don't know if it's got any coatings that might rub off like CRTs had.
