    I don't want to damage it, but it's got fingerprints and it's annoying me. Any suggestions?

    Same go for Powerbooks? I don't know if this is just normal glass or not, and I don't want to take any chance of screwing it up.

    I'm real careful not to get fingerprints on it, but having been sick for a week, the occasional cough spray hit it. But ya, that kind of thing and fingerprints and stuff.

    I guess I could just use the little cloth that came with my psp.

    iklear or microfiber cloth and water. Don't use stuff like windex, and definatly don't use paper towels, both will fuck up the screens finish, and leave you with a scratched surface.

    :werd: Windex will eat away at the finish of any LCD (I think it's the amonia that does this - not sure). NEVER EVER EVER use windex on an LCD screen!
