    What do you guys use to clean your laptops? My Powerbook has some smudges on it and a damp cloth just seems to make them worse.

    What about on the screen? I know I chemicals shouldn't be used, what what gets a laptop screen the cleanest?

    isopropyl based cleaners without too much fragrance work wonders on the screen.

    I've heard alcohol is bad for a laptop screen.

    Microfiber, no liquids just gently wipe in circular motion.
