taking my new laptop out of the box I ntoiced a candle that had been burning all night above me.  picking it up i did not realize the glass holder was full of hot wax to the brim.  i didn't mind the wax on my clothes but the wax on the brand new screen and keyboard (on top and inbetween the keys).  Is there a way to remove this wax without doing damage?

That sounds like it would be very tricky to clean up.

Without seeing exactly, I can only recommend to try scraping off any large chunks that have already dried. 

For the bit that's left, I would advise having someone hold the laptop upside down while you take a hairdryer on Medium and try to melt the remaining wax on the upside down laptop and have a towel ready to wipe up what melts off.

Be very careful not to cause damage to the laptop by the heating process.  It shouldn't take a whole lot to get it melted.

Good luck!  :ph34r:
