    Might be the cleaner you use, some of them leave behind a film that attracts dust almost as good as Armor All (and that is a dirt magnet.)

    Edit: I'm not saying to use Armor All on anything, in fact avoid it for everything, just noting I haven't seen too many things that attract dust quicker.

    understandably. LCD screens are polarized and the dust particles have a charge. :confused: purpose of the thread?

    Due to the glass....it is a dirt magnet. I have to wipe it every 1 hour with my finger :\

    This same thing has never happened on matte displays. I have a 30" ACD and I've never had any dirt clog up on it.

    I tend to find a few specs, I simply wipe it off, but then that makes fingerprints, then you gotta get the wipes out, and wipe it all...... aand yeah.

    Dust shows up more on the glass than it does on a matte display. Reflections/way the light shines makes the dust more obvious. You'll have the same amount on a matte screen, it just doesn't show up as much.

    That's why there's the cleaning cloth ;)

    Four posts. Four posts is what separates "My screen is dusty" from T&A time. Good work.

    i thought the glass screen not only protected the LCD better, it also made it easier to clean than the classic mbps?

    Yep. Went through 2 screens on my previous MBP because of dust *under the screen*.

    I can deal with cleaning the surface every few weeks, but you can never clean under the screen.

    So... the screen is also a magnet for any dust floating around which again means that you have to set the brightness artificially high just to work. I know why they give you that little black dust cloth when you buy the thing now:
