    A damp cloth if I need too but to be honest, I've not needed too. It generally holds up very well

    I use a micro fibre cloth on the screen that I dampen a little if I get them stubborn little marks.

    As for the body its still like new cos it is, only had it a couple of months now.

    Any LCD screen solution that you can buy would work for the whole unit... just use a microfiber cloth.

    It's metal and glass. You don't need microfiber or special cleaning solutions. Get a cotton rag and put a tiny bit of water or windex on it. Done.

    Microfiber tends to leave no dust behind versus cotton. Personally I'm not about lint in my keyboard.

    Micro fibre cloth with an LCD cleaner. Water can leave a residue on the screen which can be annoying.

    Water in a spray bottle and a microfiber cloth will do your MacBook Pro magic.
    Also, I found this out when I was rearranging keys to Dvorak. Pop out the keycaps and clean under them once in a while; the underside can get quite filthy.

    I use the microfiber thing that came with my MBP. It is good, i also use it to clean my iPhone. For the screen i use a regular clear display solution.

    I use costco glasses cleaning solution that you get free refills with =} and a microfiber cloth. For the exterior, just dampen a cloth and wipe it.

    The best product i have found is called iKlear. It can be purchased at any apple store or online. it's the only thing i've found to clean the screen on your computer and not leave streeks and smears, it will also clean the aluminum case and not harm it at all.

    I find when using water to damped the cloth when I clean the screen if I then use a dry part of the cloth it leaves no smears what so ever and as mentioned above every last bit of dust is gone too leaving it sparking :)

    iKlear, now how much is that stuff? A fortune for what it is no doubt ;)
