    I heard you say to use the Magic Eraser on plastic computers – I used a Magic Eraser on my hp printer lid (plastic). it took out the ink that got on it, but it scratched the daylights out of it! be very very very careful with the Magic Eraser!

    We used them at the Apple store like everyday on customers computers with no issues. I think HP uses lower grade plastics as a way to keep cost down… Apple has the benefit of not having to chase price points to fight competition..

    I believe most HP printers have a glossy covering on their plastics and magic erasers will scratch that up. Same thing with the now discontinued MacBook that had a very glossy sheen you shouldn’t use a magic erase on. I would only recommend using it on a matte finish.

    I think you’re right. It wasn’t super glossy, but it’s the right line of thinking. If you had the polycarbonate white Macbook, it would be a mistake to use the Magic eraser on the outer glossy case, but it was exactly the tool to take the wrist rest smudges off on that same Macbook.
