    Default Cleaning a macbook monitor

    The monitor on my laptop is accumulating dust, and I'm always paranoid that the method I use to clean it may damage it. I've used baby wipes and water/paper towel in the past.

    Without going out and buying solutions specifically for cleaning a laptop screen, what is the best method to clean the dust off of the screen without scratching/damaging it? Does a paper towel and cold water suffice?

    It's less about the solution you use and more about the cloth you use to wipe. Never, ever use paper products because they will scratch the screen. Use a chamois or a cloth similar to what you'd use to clean eyeglasses. Baby wipes are fine too.

    The cloth for glasses usually works.

    There's a pretty easy solution to your dust-problem.

    First get your hands on a 1x1x1 (m) cubic glass container. Secondly, purchase approximately 500 liters of Fluorusulfuric acid. Then throw your Macbook into the tub of fun and buy a PC.

    Why would anyone do this (aside from being a cheap bastard)?

    Pee on it.

    I use my lens cleaning cloth/wand. Works well. Sometimes you need to breath on it for really cruddy areas/corners.

    More bang for the buck and an OS that isn't gay. A computer is not supposed to be a fashion asset. If you use it as one you deserve you have your face pushed into a meat grinder together with the assholes who wear headsets around their neck when they aren't going to listen to music any time soon. Then your face can be processed into food for the 3rd world and something good can come out of it for once.

    I like the fact that the Mac is smooth running, easy to use and almost invincible to virus and other malware..... and, it's a hell of a fashion asset.

    Need to clean a laptop monitor? I hear nonoxynol-9 works great. Spray on, wait a bit, wipe off and resume normal programming. (Warning: nonoxynol-9 will not protect your computer from viruses.)

    Can't really go wrong with any of the Naked flavors.
