My iBook screen is pretty filthy but haven't attempted to clean it out of fear that I will leave marks or damage of some kind. Can someone recommend a good LCD cleaning product? Thanks loads. :)

use a microfiber cloth such as the one that one uses for eyeglasses.

Actually, depending on where the OP lives, the tap water may contain minerals that could--over time--scratch the screen.

I've used iKlear for over a year, with great success. One kit has lasted a year, with probably about a 6-8 months left.

They sell them at Apple Stores in a nice kit with a spray bottle, the portable Wipes, a small Microfiber cloth, a large Microfiber cloth, and a free keyboard protector. Great value.

ok, i know this sounds harsh, but if you don't wanna spend the money just use windex and a tissue. I have an ibook and have used windex or simular with a normal tissue many many times and have had NO issues what so ever. Just spritz on the tissue and wipe and maybe a separate tissue for drying. If you are really concerned just get eyeglass or lense cleaner kit for a camera and use that. :D

This is a bad solution, for two reasons. The Windex will slowly damage the screen, and the tissues will leave microscopic scratches because they're paper-based.

Use tap water and a microfiber cloth, like Apple recommends.
