Whats a reliable screenwipe to use for MBPs. I currently used kleen & dry by read right and the cloth is might be too wet for the screen. Any suggestions would be helpful thx.

Dunno, I'm still trying to find some decent ones for mine that aren't too pricey.

This is taken from the Apple website::

Cleaning Your MacBook Pro Display
Follow these general rules when cleaning the screen.
Shut down your MacBook Pro, detach the power adapter, and remove the battery.
Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water only and wipe the screen. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen.

I bought one of these tonight at CompUSA for $7.99: 3M Microfiber Electronics Cloth. Seems good enough, plus it's reuseable and machine washable. The directions say you can use it dry or slightly damp. Handy to keep in the laptop bag.

Cheap, safe and effective:

Take sheet of Bounty paper towel off roll
Wet completely with lukewarm water--nothing else
Squeeze out thoroughly until no more water drips out
Examine screen and blow off any grit if present
Open damp paper towel and use to gently wipe screen
Let air dry
After cleaning screen, use the damp paper towel to gently wipe down keyboard, wristrests and trackpad.

Other advice:

Keep a sheet of plain white printer paper between keyboard and screen when closed to prevent transfer of anything from keyboard
Don't eat or drink while using your laptop

I have been doing this for years: through PowerBook 180, PowerBook 1400c, Pismo and now PB G4 12 1.33. My screens have always stayed in mint condition.

Enjoy

Avoid anything with alcohol in it, I use Klear Screen, Apple's officially recommended solution (all Apple stores carry it) and I dust my screen with one of RadTech's screen protectors (which I put on the keyboard before closing the lid).

Actually the towel dipped in lukewarm water worked for me.
