    I just saw some dots on my macbook pro retina screen I tried to clean it with a cloth that come with glasses but it seems they won't disappear.

    Here's a picture : http://postimage.org/image/cte0r5s1p/

    I can see it on a white and mostly black background. if there is a good light on my screen i can see much more of them..
    I believe it's a samsung screen. the dots feels like the between the screen and the glue.

    yes I don't have the cleaning cloth that came with it. someone bought it in the US and forgot to take it with him.

    anyway what should i buy to clean it ? how does everyone clean their retina screen ?

    thanks for the quick reply

    That glasses cloth you have should work fine. Don't make it wet, just a little damp.

    with a little water that disappeared :O
    Thank you. I might need to clean my screen more often.

    sending it here for repair and my laptop is taken for a week so I'm glad it's nothing serious :D

    Nice :) Another thing, Make sure when you clean, your Mac is turned off.

    Another option is to use distilled water in the same way you would water- by slightly damping the cloth.

    A more expensive but perhaps more effective is to use a good lens cleaner. Apply the cleaner (in very small amount) on the cloth you're cleaning the screen with but never apply the cleaner on the screen itself. Kodak used to make one. Use it sparingly only when the screen is really greasy and smudgy.

    a little water with glass cloth removed it. clean your mac once a week I already learned my lesson.
