    I have a few light smudges on the screen of my 12" Powerbook (first generation) and was wondering what's the best way to clean it without damaging the computer?

    Thanks

    Use a cleaner that is specific to LCD screens. They are designed not to scratch your display. You can find some at Office Max and others I'm sure.

    I use a 3M ScotchBrite High Performance Cloth. Relatively inexpensive at Costco. I'm sure they're available other places. Haven't had any problems with scratching or anything.

    I've had excellent results by using those sprays and cloths that you can get at sunglasses stores.

    A periodic wipe with a damp tissue does ok too. That and a piece of copy paper when the lid goes down and you should be good for a clean screen. Oh yes, and a big stick for the jerkoes who touch your screen.

    Ha!:D :cool: That's outstanding!

    I've never understood why people need to refer to something on-screen by fingering the actual screen -- didn't anyone ever tell them, "Hey, you know, it's not a window to another dimension. It's just a video image, not the real thing!"

    Why they think I'll pay more attention to what they're saying is beyond me: could it be, "If I leave a slimy fingerprint on the screen, everyone will remember exactly where I want the change to be"?!

    Grrrr....
