    Hello,

    I just got a macbook aluminum last week. I got a soft cloth included in the box for cleaning the screen, but it doesn't seem to get more of the stubborn bits around the edges of the screen ( the black border ). I was wondering what the safest way to clean the screen would be?

    I searched around google and got the generic water/cloth thing. But wasn't too sure if that was good with the new macbooks or not.

    Thanks!

    iKlear all the way.. you can use it on anything and it does an amazing job...use it on your whole mac not just the screen

    and NEVER EVER EVER use nail polish remover on a whitebook. it'll take the polish off of it before you can say mommy. your nice glossy finish will suddenly turn into matte

    I use no streaking Windex and never spray it directly on the screen. works just fine.

    iKlear or Monster screen cleaner is my choice.

    A microfiber cloth is fine, but using a damp paper towel occasionally goes a long way in getting rid of fingerprint marks and such.

    i don't really see a need to use special cleaners such as iklear e tc, using water with a cloth works pretty well for me

    I use isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth, and it took everything off of my Glossbook and my iPhone...works everytime and costs less than a dollar ;)

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Sorry for not searching here, at least I searched Google :D. I'll most likely just stick to the water and cloth way then.
