    Hey just a question about what I can use to clean this screen.
    I've read that one should avoid alcohol/ammonium sollutions for anti-glare treated screens, but the 13" MB Unibody doesn't have this does it?

    You can use anything really, but I HIGHLY recommend iKlear, that stuff is amazing.

    depends on what your talking about... aluminum unibody or polycarbonate unibody

    the aluminum ones have a piece of glass over the screen so you can literally use anything you would use on glass, so yes windex would work

    if your talking about the polycarbonate one(just released) then shutdown and use a very soft damp cloth the gently wipe the screen

    Water and a microfiber cloth works fine for me.

    get some iklear if you can, but it wont work if the screen is über greasy - if thats the case then use something stronger :)

    I just use baby wipes (basically, soft cloth drenched in rubbing alcohol) and it cleaned my glass and not glass screens excellently, it just leaves a slight film you need to wipe off with the rubbing cloth apple provides.
