I’ve been reading that the blue nc10 seems to gather finger prints on its lid; this is confirmed when I look at mine – i’ve only had it since wednesday and there are a few.
I’ve mainly been successfull in removing them with small amounts of water, but I was wondering if anyone had any creative solutions to the problem as some prints seem to be worce to remove than others.

I’ve been having the same “problem” on my black NC10 which I recieved for christmas yesterday, having already managed to collect quite a number of finger prints. I have lots of micro-fibre cloths through tenpin-bowling and found that a clean one of those should remove most of the marks. Some are harder to remove than others like you have said, in which case you just concentrate more on the areas that are worse (just don’t get frustrated and rub it too hard) 🙂December 26, 2008 at 7:31 pm #177394PanManMember
leave the lid open and sit in front of the screen and you can’t see them ;o)December 26, 2008 at 9:18 pm #177397hufnMember

I still haven’t taken the plastic off the lid yet, althogh it looks pretty bad itself. I figure I’ll just get over it since it’s still pretty sharp looking.December 26, 2008 at 9:26 pm #177395PanManMember
But being serious a moment finger prints I can live with its if it started picking up scratches I’ld be miffed.
Hmmm havent ploished mine for a while and either my eye sights going or if you leave it long enough the prints just vanishDecember 27, 2008 at 4:03 am #177391undoMember
Perhaps you could have it sand blasted. (I’m only partly kidding.)
I hate glossy plastic. I recently bought a new monitor for my desk at work. It has a shiny black bezel and the overhead fluorescent lights reflecting off the curved glossy plastic drove me crazy. So I got some Krylon Matte Finish (spray paint) and eliminated the problem by spraying the top portion of the plastic bezel. I might be tempted to do the same thing if I had a glossy NC10.December 27, 2008 at 5:35 am #177399berflesMember
I wouldn’t mind fingerprints, it’s the fine scratches/lines you get when you clean it. If you look at it in direct light I’m sure you’ll see swirl marks or lines all over the plain. If I ever get one, I’ll have a piece of plastic cut out and stuck on the back. I’m not sure if the provided cover stays on well enough.December 27, 2008 at 5:55 am #177398ReplytokenMember
I hate glossy finishes on equipment, and I hate the fingerprints they attract and show. And while I like to keep my equipment looking as new as possible, I am starting to come to realization that while pride of ownership is important, and its always nice when it comes time to sell, most of my equipment becomes obsolete and loses all of its value before it gets sold. So, since my NC10 cost 1/4 of the price of a Sony TZ, I am trying not to worry too much about the fingerprints. No, I will not abuse it, but I try to remind myself that it is a tool with a reasonably short shelf life, and I would assume amost no collectible value. Any important data on it, on the other hand, is backed up frequently! YMMV.

You can always exchange it for a white one! 😀
Mine stays beautiful all the time and has yet to show a fingerprint…and I’ve had it for two weeks! I just wipe the touchpad down now and then..but no shiny cover with fingerprints. 🙂December 27, 2008 at 1:46 pm #177396baldrickMember
I find a KFC wet wipe does the trick on my iphone and it seems to leave it immune to fingerprints for a while. although that could just be because I have cleaned my fingers with the wet wipe.
