    I have a 15" Powerbook and I was wondering which cleaner will clean off the LCD and case effectively?

    I guess the two main ones are iKlear and iClean.

    I get the cheapest brand I can find. I've purchased many brands and they all seem about the same. The one thing I do look for is the wipes. The wipes are much easier than the spray. You don't need to find the perfect cloth to wipe down the laptop.

    Yeah, iKlear works well, just make sure you rub the screen down completely to avoid streaks.

    24.95USD to clean my screen and keyboard, don't get me wrong i care about my laptop more then the next guy but what am i missing 24.95USD is ridiculous for a cleaning agent.

    Hmm that is kind of expensive. I have the little pouches (are those what they call "travel" version?) and I got a ton of them a while ago for I think $5 per 10. You can always use a really mild soap and water but iKlear is the best specific cleaning I've found for PowerBooks.

    The best cleaner that I have used for my Powerbook and Apple Cinema Display is found at your local Sunglass Hut.

    Get a nice bottle of lens cleaner and, if you don't already own a pair of Oakleys, those nice semi-shiny cloths. In theory, I chose this as my cleaner because those lens cleaners must be gentle enough to clean a wide array of very very expensive lenses (polarized, Oakley plutonite, etc.) and can be used on a constant basis. The cloth is lint free, very soft and does a good job of not leaving any film behind.

    I think I got mine at OtherWorld Computing, but it appears the price has gone up to $7.50 for 10. :rolleyes: And of course it's prolly not worth it unless you're already buying a bigger item there (although they are a very good mail-order Mac shop).
