    I've had my iBook for about a year now, and the screen has now got a few fingerprints from people poking around. Any advice on what to use to clean the screen without harming the screen?

    Thanks

    Get notebook/pda/lcd cleaning spray or wipes. Many different companies make them. Some people prefer one brand or another, but I get whatever is the cheapest at the time. They are pretty cheap and not usually worth buying on the net unless you are purchasing something else too. Just go your local CompUSA, Best Buy, or any other computer store.

    or if you dont want to leave the house, get a kleenex soak it, and squeeze it as hard as you can leaving you with a moist little clump thing, it will work well.

    Doesn't this leave any tissue lint?

    Nope, this is my favorite method. Use the cheap ones though without the lotion built-in.

    haha, I opened that in another tab and continued reading the thread. You can't imagine how fast I slammed down the mute button on my keyboard while reading your post...I've been stung before.

    I second this. I can't be bothered to spend money on stuff which will have almost the same effect as slighty tamp kitchen towel/paper.

    If you have a really really soft cloth, such as one used to clean glasses with, I'm guessing that will work well (it does for my iPod.) You could try something like this product from RadTech. Or, just a wet tissue...
