    Unhappy I'm having a very weird problem with my screen
    There are 2 horizontal lines(half a centimeter) , almost in the center of the screen, about 2 inches apart. They seem to be oil spots or something similar because i can wipe it or smudge it up, which leaves a bigger mess that looks like an oil swirl. I can clearly wipe everything off the screen to the point that it is impossible to see anything on it anymore(dirt/fingerprint(if any)/oil(if any)), but these two marks keep on coming back. It's really starting to frustrate me a lot. I tried windex and all kinds of products and it still comes back. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Try cleaning your keyboard off. It's likely the oil on the keys, touching the screen and leaving residue when the lid is closed.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I tried that once because I thought it was the two F and J finder things that stick up were causing it. Turned out that they wouldn't even line up when I closed the screen. I even kept a tissue paper between the screen and keyboard, and also tried keeping the screen open all the time, but they came back.
    I'm thinking of taking it to the apple store and asking them about it, but I think they will see it, clean it, and say that it is gone, only to come back in 6 hours.
