    Is it alright to use water on a soft tissue to clean my screen?

    Yes! NEVER USE WINDOW/GLASS CLEANER, on your Apple Display. You can cause the screen to warp and short out.

    if you're using an LCD display, yes water is okay; they also make LCD cleaning solutions which probably do a better job... for CRT, you can generally use windex sprayed on the towel, not the screen (if it drips down the screen, it could go behind the plastic... :()

    if you can, i'd go to compusa or bestbuy or somewhere and buy some screen cleaner for whatever monitor you have... the LCD cleaner conditions the plastic i think, and the CRT cleaner is designed not to corrode the anti-glare coating.

    I have always used water on a soft tissue to clean my iBook's screen. However, mine is 4 months old, so i cant guarantee sucess.

    I had the same question a few months ago... because I purchased the 17 " imac. I purchased iKlear and it works great.
    no streaks.
    looks perfect everytime I clean it.
