    Tell them to touch their own screens. ;)

    Unless they have sand on their fingers, all they should leave behind are greasy prints.

    The screen is glass making it pretty good at resisting scratches.

    Tell them it isnt a touch screen.

    Considering how close the screen is to the keyboard and palm rest, do you guys experience any wear marks on you screen from the aluminum palm rest and keyboard?
    You will have to turn off the screen to see it, either turn off the laptop or put the laptop to sleep mode. The wear marks is the marks you cannot wipe off.

    It look like a good idea to use a screen protector considering how close the screen is to the palm rest and keyboard.

    Nope. My rMBP is in clamshell mode at home. It only opened in the field.

    Your afraid a finger is going to scratch that screen? lol


    I don't like people touching my screen because I don't want fingerprints.

    A finger wont scratch a thing.
    I use glass cleaners to wipe off the screen but I have no scratches or marks what so ever.

    If fingerprint is a problem, use wet alcohol cloth.
    But overall, it does seem pretty scratch res.
    Its not like I stabbed it with a knife or anything but for normal use, it should be fine.
