    For all my LCD/Notebook screens, I prefer "Clean Dr." fluid. Their screen cleaning fluid can be found at CompUSA, and comes with a lint free cloth. I found most of the pull out disposable wipes either smear the screens, or aren't as safe as the could be. "Clean Dr." has no alcohol or ammonia.

    For LCD screens, I use small blue Microfiber clothes from Staples. They sell a 2-pack for about five bucks. I put them in ziplock sandwich bags to keep them clean and keep one for my desktop monitor and one for my laptop's screen in the laptop bag.

    For the rest of my computer stuff, I use rubbing alcohol and lint-free cloths. You can pick up good lint-free cloths at Staples as well. This combination cleans computer plastic really well and makes it look brand new.

    i use a very diluted mix of alcohol and water on a damp microfiber towel to clean the outside of the ibook. To clean the wristpads I use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. From others experience I'd say keep the Magic Eraser off the keys and trackpad, fyi.

    my apple is bling *tisk tisk, you shouldn't have any bling.. just nice things*
