    Usually just a microfiber cloth. Sometimes with a damp paper towel.

    Whatever you do, dont use rubbing alcohol in the screens.

    I have 2 microfiber cloths. Usually I use just a dry one to wipe any dust off. But when it is needed I dampen one of the cloths with water and use it to clean finger prints and what not off. Then I use the dry microfiber cloth to wipe the damp off and give it that final loving touch.

    Baby wipes and micro fibre.

    Why does that sound kinky??

    I use two tubes of Fellowes alcohol wipes, one for the screen and one for the surfaces.

    Just have to have the microfiber cloths. I've been using them since I opened my I-Pod touch and there is not a single scratch/ finger print on it!

    Windex and paper towels. I've never had a scratch or issue and it's the cheapest method.

    Microfiber cloth for the screen, if it's really dirty, I spray on some Kensington Screen Guardian. For the rest of the MBP, I use disinfecting wipes.

    ^ This. I don't know why they don't sell it at the Apple Store anymore, now they sell another brand.

    Yup, just spray it on the microfiber cloth and scrub away. Screen, keyboard, trackpad.

    I just use a damp cotton wash cloth then dry with a cotton hand towel. If there is something tougher than water will handle I dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol.
