    Curious as to what the safest method for cleaning the anti-glare screens is on the unibodies. On my glossy a simple damp lint-free cloth works perfectly, but I have a feeling that over time that method of cleaning may actually rub/ruin the antiglare surface, so I'm a bit worried.

    How best to clean your antiglare?

    Nah, damp cloth works fine. Just be careful with the pressure. :)

    Be light.

    The cleaning cloth you got with your Mac is good for getting rid of smears.

    ...and Windex.



    No, seriously, just a soft, damp cloth. On my old anti-glare MBP I cleaned the screen with a Microfiber cloth and a little water. If there were fingerprints on the screen or something else that's greasy and hard to clean, I substituted iKlear for water.

    I say almost the exact same thing you could, Bill Gates.

    But in all seriousness, the above worked fine and dandy.

    I'm a big fan of iKlear. They also come with cloths.

    THIS is the very best way to clean a matte screen. It probably the best cleaner you can find.
