    I noticed I get a keyboard imprint (wipe off-able) on my screen after awhile when I open the MBA. Anyone notice this?

    If youre picky/particular about it, I'm sure you can get it exchanged. Sounds like it's off by a mm or two. It's happened to other MacBooks and MacBook pros.

    I'm using a RadTech ScreenSavrz for MacBook Air 11" and it works a treat. Protects the screen and also using as a wipe for the screen. Highly recommended as I use a Moshi keyboard protector which touches the screen.

    man 17 bucks for a piece of cloth? good god. I wonder where I can just buy a super big microfiber cloth and lay it on on my mba when I close it.

    I had my screen replaced for light scratches caused by the kb. Unfortunately, they are not removable and a couple of days ago I noticed the same marks on the new screen. I began using a slim sloth on the kb whenever I close that laptop. :mad:

    It could just be the dust on and between the key caps falling on the display when the clamshell is closed and the device tilted.

    Try keeping your keyboard a lot cleaner; brush it off and shake it out upside down before closing. Maybe use a vacuum on it.
