    Little black tissue came with my MacBook Pro
    Can anyone tell me what is this little black piece of flannel that came with my MacBook Pro for?

    I have no idea what is its purpose, even though, initially I figured it was just something to clean up your screen, what gets me is that it's way to stylish for this (hence the Apple logo), and weirdly enough, when unfolded, it looks like it could be used as a mouse pad because it has different textures on each side, and one could say that the bottom could stick to your table, but it is, at the same time, too much of a tissue to hold down your mouse.

    Here it's how it came (clockwise):

    1st photo: it came folded like that, CD size, inside a CD like plastic envelope
    2nd photo: the back, with the cool logo on the corner
    3rd photo: unfolded, used as a mouse pad
    4th photo: a little kneaded so you can see how fin it is


    This is silly, but is driving me crazy!

    "Nevermind" means my first answer was wrong! Don't assume the worst.

    TattooedMac has it right. It is just a cleaning cloth for your screen. Apple's middle name is stylish so even something as simple as a cleaning cloth has to be done Apple's way.

    If you have a glossy screen then you will use it pretty often because dirt shows up easier on glossy screens compared to matte screens from what I have experienced.
