    I have a 2011 MBP 15" with an anti-glare display. I have never actually touched the display to point at things on the screen and such but it still gets dirty. What is a good cleaning solution for an anti-glare display?

    I suggest using the search function.

    Or you could just answer my question like the previous poster did.

    No need to be rude. As this question would be answered with a search.

    But I will answer it again, so maybe when the next person searches they will find the answer.

    It depends how dirty it is. If it is just dust, use a high quality microfiber (perform a cd test first, take your MF towel and a blank cd. Rub your towel on the burn side of the cd with moderate pressure. With good lighting look at the burn side from multiple angles, if you any scratches that will resemble swirl marks that you see on to many cars, don't use the towel).

    If you have finger prints and other stuff, you are going to need something to cut the greese a bit. If you can find some, I have been really happy with iKlear. Don't buy any of the packages that come with towels, cause the towels fail the cd test.

    Or you can just use the search function like you're suppose to ;)

    That said, I've anything from water, to iKlear, to rubbing alcohol.

    Remember that MacBook Pro screens aren't all that different to the screens of other laptops :) So a Google search of "How to clean a laptop screen" would probably answer your question. Good luck!
