    Got my new MBA today. Opened the "designed in california" package. Plenty of Apple decal and instructions I don't need, but no nice black microfiber screen cleaner cloth.

    They did a bit of decontenting, to be sure (no microfiber cloth, backlit keyboard, ambient light sensor, or infrared). That said, the microfiber cloth is about $2 at any drug store.

    I think they only ship microfiber cloths with the glass screen macs (macbook pro, imac, cinema display, etc).

    Who cares? I go through microfiber clothes like they are tissues.

    I had it with my MBP '09, when did Apple start to provide MB's without it?

    I've had mine for years. You can wash them & dry them and they are as good as new. Buy a decent one (the apple ones are pretty skimpy) and it will last you years.

    They get dirty, then lost, then I buy new ones. Maybe I'll eventually find the old ones then rinse, wash, and repeat. Point being, who cares whether they include a cheap microfiber cloth or not, as they weren't good quality to begin with and did nowhere near as good of a job at cleaning than higher quality microfiber clothes that you have to buy on your own.

    Yeah, I've been using the same microfiber cloth for at least 6 months. I ran it through the washer and dryer again yesterday. At this rate, I'll lose it before I wear it out.

    First, microfiber cloths look brand new again after they are washed and dried. I wash mine frequently. Second, if a word of advice could be accepted in the spirit in which it is given, top posting is regarded as bad form here and most other places that I know about. That's why virtually all of the posts you see here put quoted material at the top and the poster's response below it.
