    Specs:
    MBP 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 4GB 1333MHz 320GB / 60G iPod Touch
    What kind of monitor cleaning spray? As directly onto the screen?

    I bought this at the mac store:

    And works like a charm, no more smudges ^^

    I use cleaning wipes specially made for tft diplays and can't complain.
    They're cheap, come in a dispenser and have an antistatic effect.
    By the way I have recently published my personal cleaning ritual (which is kinda extensive but it works for me).

    Regarding the wipes be careful to choose a brand with no alcohol in the solution though...the alcohol can damage your glossy display.

    Never spray a display / lens cleaner directly onto a LCD screen. Always spray onto a lint-free cloth, and then wipe the display screen.

    I use wipes approved by Apple.

    I always wondered how to clean the screen on my macbook.
    I used the cleaning cloth for my sunnies, works fine. As long as you didn't sneeze on your monitor ha ha

    It should be noted; that is a direct quote from apple... If you go into help and look it up, your mac will actually tell you to use a soft cloth and room temp water

    you should shut down your mac and let it cool down a loottt too before you do a thorough clean like that.

    i love iKlear and microfibre cloths
    She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
    and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
    Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.
