    hello everyone,

    I was wondering, since the LCD of MBA is naked, if somebody "pokes" the screen with their fingertips trying to point to something by mistake, would it cause a permanent damage? if yes, how hard of a pressure would cause such a damage?

    thank you.

    You Should NEVER

    Poke an lcd screen....Goes for MBA MBP etc. and of course TV's. Poking at the screen will eventually cause damage. Clean the screen with a slightly moist anti static cloth, and keep peoples fingers away!

    Yea, it won't damage it if it happens a few times. but I would try to avoid it as much as possible

    yeah i would suggest never touching the screen, only when you go to clean it, use a special cleaning kit. i bought one from apple store called keep it clean and its great.

    my first screen got damaged, not sure if it was me or whether it was a manufacturing default, either way avoid fingers on the screen at all costs.
