    The :apple: black cloth that came with my MBA.

    Does anyone know where I could get something similar?

    If you mean similar as in a cloth that cleans your MBA, I think any microfiber cloth would do. With regards to cleaning, I suggest iKlear which may come with a blue microfiber cloth.

    I mean a cloth like the one that came with the MBA.

    It's like a chamois texture, but thin.

    I use iKlear and it comes with a terry cloth; (I spray iKlear on the terry cloth and never directly on my MBA) I wipe my MBA down to clean it; then use the soft cloth to polish it. Works every time...:cool:

    Just go out and ask for a "microfiber" cloth!

    P.S.: They're expensive!

    Is there something unique about the MBA screen that it comes with a cleaning cloth? None of the other laptops have it.

    +1 on the microfiber cloth. My eye doctor gives me one with my new glasses every year. Maybe you can score one that way.

    Thanks, but that's not what I asked. And that terry cloth that comes with iKlear is waaay too rough.

    Again, not what I asked. A microfiber cloth is not really what I'm looking for, too rough.

    It doesn't require a special cloth but if you want to pay for one "especially" made for the purpose -> these are quite nice:

    ... and no, there is nothing unique about the MBA screen - it's glossy and a fingerprint magnet - that's all.

    I was just suggesting that you could use iKlear as a REPLACEMENT for your "lost MBA cleaning cloth!" good luck anyway...

    Yes, I know the MBA doesn't require a special cloth, but I used the one that came with my Air to clean the black piano finish frame of my external LCD, and it worked beautifully. The iKlear cloth scratched it.

    Anyway, Thank you so much for the suggestion, by the description it sounds perfect. :)

    The only thing readily available in the market softer than that is Velvet!
    Besides.... it's perfect for all shiny electronics since it resists dust accumulation!
