    i got tons of sweat "smudges" on my computer, and on me screen, what kind of home products should i use? like a LIGHTLY wet paper towel?

    Any microfibre cloth (especially for windows/glass) is excellent for both smudges on the black surface and spots on the screen. Do not use any chemicals on the screen! Extra tough spots might require you to dampen the cloth ever so slightly, but normally just a bit condense from my breath takes care of most things...

    yeah dude, that's the best advice. Just go to an Optical store (eyeware store) and ask them for a microfibre towel (the ones they give you to clean your glasses when you buy them.

    i have couple one in my house and one that travels with me. The blackbook gets oily fingerprints and just using the towel will solve it. like Mitthraw.... :p said it it's getting too difficult to get out just dampen it with some water, SQUEEZE ALL OF IT before cleaning the computer and that'll do the trick :)

    Why don't you use some sandpaper and toss it in the wash too while your at it :p . Just razzing you. Do what the above people suggest, use a microfiber cloth.
