Maybe a heavy duty bleach cleaner and a lot of scrubbing. It worked very well on some old Dell and Gateway computers I've restored.

What kind of writing? It might. If not, try GooGone. That stuff has taken sharpie marker ink right off the label side of some used games I bought.

only solution for case yellowing is sand / repaint. Yes bleech will remove logos ect... off the plastic and possibly even melt the plastic it's self considering how basic it is.
