    I´m loving my new retina display MBP. But because this laptop is "all screen", it also has the potential to get "all dirty".
    I have lots of photo lenses and I have learnt that a simple lens pen is one of the best ways of keeping a dust and spot free screen. In fact, I have not yet whiped or rinsed with anything for more than two weeks now. I generally think it´s a good idea not only to avoid chemicals, but any liquid.
    As always, clean hands and fingers are necessary. Otherwise, brush lightly of any dust with the dust tip and rub out any stain with the filt clad tip.

    Only downside is that you will look like a bit of a geek, like me ...

    I don't get how screens get so dirty lol. Swear I never touch mine, yet it always seems to grub up, the lil' troll. I just used microfiber usually too. That pen kinda looks like a more industrial make up brush sort of thing :p

    lol, I thought the same thing, but I'm afraid the carbon will scratch the 'glass' because I don't know if it is like real glass in a lens. I decided to order shaggyMac to protect the screen.

    I don't know how it is where you live, but here there is this thing called dust, and it accumulates on everything.

    The bezel is understandable, but the middle of the screen? I can't figure that one out. :) Maybe it's the grease from the keyboard keys that touch the screen when you close the lid?

    Those lens pens are great, I use them for my photography gear as well as cleaning undersides of watch crystals and computer screen smudges.
