    Getting Mine

    On the 28th, I think I'll buy a dedicated cleaning kit for it. I didn't get a screen cleaning cloth with my iMac either, only my iPads.

    Would like to know the best way to clean the MBAs screen....always makes me nervous cleaning those screens

    Microfiber and a static free cleaning solution. Keep the microfiber clean of dirty and debris.

    You can get a microfiber cloth at various Dollar$ stores...

    My experience with those is they shed a lot of little fibers. They don't damage the screen but they stick to it like dust.

    I prefer monster cleaner's cloth (that comes in the kit) or "better quality" soft, plush microfiber cloths.

    Monster?

    Thats the kit right? Your right about the micro fibre cloths leaving specs...The only decent one I've had was the one that came with my Griffin Leather case.

    No, it doesn't come with a cleaning cloth which disappointed me because one of my relatives bought the 2011 pro refurb and got one.

    Answer to OP and everyone else:

    Just use the cloth they give with your glasses!

    Anything from Monster is a waste of money.

    Just go to a store like Home Depot for Microfiber cloths. You can get a pack of 25 microfiber cloths for around 10 dollars. It is the exact same cloth, even blue like the Monster brand.

    EDIT: Here is a link to a "premium" microfiber cloth you can buy a ton of places for a fraction of the cost of the premium crap from Monster.

    Except their power conditioners.

    I got a pretty large one with my 27" iMac that I have been using on my iPad MBA and iPhone.
