    damp lint-free cloth, same thing you'd clean any glass surface worth its salt?

    Just use any display cleaning cloth. If you have another Apple product with a display, there should be a cleaning cloth included in that one.

    The cloth that came with my MBP works great. It makes no since that they didn't include one with this. If you have glasses, te cloth that came with that would work well too.

    The cloth that comes with all the MacBook Pros works. It's a microfiber cloth and no cleaner is needed. Eyeglasses cloth would work as well.

    Why did my iMac come with a cleaning cloth, when I rarely touch the glass surface, but my iPad - which requires that I touch the surface - did not?

    Apple FAIL on this one.

    The reason there is no cloth with the iPad is because you can use any cloth, be it a shirt, or a wool blanket. It all works.

    Seriously.

    Are they kidding about the oleophobic coating? I can't imagine this thing being any better at picking up fingerprints.

    Exactly. The iPhone has a special coating allowing you to wipe off prints on your jeans. It's the same with the iPad.

    Yea seriously it's so easy to clean the iphones glass with just about any cloth. Cant imagine it would be any different with the ipad.

    Yes! You do not need that junk anyway. If anything maybe a tiny bit of water on a soft cloth but nothing more.

    My shirt works just fine. Can't imagine carrying a cleaning cloth around.

    Don't bother. The prints come back in two minutes of use anyway. I wonder why apple didn't put that special oleophobic coating to ward of greasy fingerprints like they did on the iPhone 3GS.

    I use an LCD screen cleaner (a spray) and a microfiber cloth. It seems to work great. Is there any issue with using this?

    any microfiber cloth works wonders on cleaning the screen.
