    Many I've been trying to figure out what to do with that thing for the past day. So far it's being used as a duster.

    For crying in when it has to go in for Applecare the first time?

    You can use it for that, or to go on top of the keyboard when you close the MPB, to prevent skin oil from getting on the screen.

    I remember seeing that the MBA was supposed to come with a polishing cloth for the screen. Did you get a glossy screen, by chance?

    For cleaning your MBP and covering the keyboard.

    Can I just ask a question, though?

    Why was this such a HUGE issue?

    Just curious.

    Nah it's not gloss. Just matte.

    HAHA I was being sarcastic about this being a HUGE deal...

    I was hoping so, but you never know sometimes.
    It's like those threads: "Can I have my MBP exchanged for a Penryn model if I think there are evil spirits in mine? I got it in July, but I really think is has the spirits of the dead in the Santa Rosa chip. So...can I get an upgrade?"

    I just want to smack those people, you know.

    It's actually pretty good for cleaning the screen. Just that and a wee little bit 'o water. I think it's microfiber.

    I wish they would have sent them on older laptops where keys and space bar would etch themselves into screen when closed.

    Hanky? Where is this hanky you speak of? :confused:

    There was a thi sheet of white foam in between the keyboard and screen when I first opened my MBP, but I didn't see any black hanky anywhere!

    (I didn't go through the entire box, actually - aside from taking out the MBP and power cord I didn't touch anything else in the box! - did I miss something in there?)

    My Air came w. one. It was folded up I think w. doc's. Is Apple now replacing all laptop remotes w. free Apple hankys? (Actually microfiber)

    While I don't exactly know what it's for, my a** felt a lot smoother after using it.
    Just joking of course!

    To clean the Finger Prints off! or maybe to wipe the sweat off so you don't burn a hole through your laptop.

    You lay the hanky in your lap before you place your MBP upon it. It's a useful option for men who want to someday have kids.

    Honestly I'd rather have the Apple Remote than some silly cloth.

    Lmao, they probably save a few pennies doing that (i'm sure both those items cost them nothing).

    It's definitely for the screen. The iPod touch comes with one, too. Personally I think the remote is a great throw in, though. I work at a big box computer store and a lot of people seem to be the most wowed by the remote that it comes with and how it activates front row and such (as strange as it may be...). So I don't think it was wise of them to take it out.
