    13" MacBook Pro 5,5

    Any recommendations on the correct way to clean LED screen and clean aluminum?

    I use iKlear and normal electronic cleaner pads, my dad uses Windex. The latter is not recommended by some, his computer looks perfectly fine. (although it's a BlackBook, not aluminum)

    I second iKlear. Just saying.
    You can pick some up at your local Apple Store, or order online.

    I use normal glass cleaning spray on the display itself. just spray a bit on a paper. the clean the screen with it. make sure the paper s not wet but only moistened a bit. and don't use it on the aluminum.

    The manual says to wet the cloth that came with the computer with plain water and use that.

    Microfiber cloth (REAL MF clothes can be had cheap from online camera stores) and some water and alcohol. like 80/20% mix.

    I don't remember a cloth coming in the box, I'll have to open it up again and give another look.

    The cloth is black and packed in the shape of a square :p

    I prefer computer wipes because they are alcohol based and so will evaporate in no time. However do NOT place it in the dishwasher or autoclave.
