I have heard great things about radtech's screensavrz. That is what I plan to get to clean my laptop screen and my cinema display.

Water & vinegar, 8:1, and a soft cotton cloth or handkerchief.

I have used iKlear with every PB I have owned. Available at Apple Store or www.iklear.com. Can clean screen, body and keyboard. I like the single use packs, as I can carry them in my laptop bag, but the spray is a better value. I spent $30 2.5 years ago for a full kit and it is still half full and cleaning PB's...

Another thumbs up for iKlear. Just make sure you don't use any alcohol based cleaning products and you should be fine.

I use the same cloth that I bought to clean my glasses. It's really fine material and does not scratch. The cloth combined with the human breath on the screen does wonders!

microfiber towel + a can of cheezwiz seems to do the trick for me.

oh wait, you were talking about cleaning the screen...

in that case i'd say microfiber towel + diluted vinegar solution.

Ironically, I've found nothing works like saliva to clean my PowerBook. Even works on key marks.

Wanna poke my screen NOW?

I sure hope your Powerbook doesn't smell like what I think it does... and if you clean your Powerbook as much as I do, than wow, that saliva smell might just stay on there forever and never go away. Well, at least you'll be able to tell which Powebook is yours by smelling it if it ever gets messed up with other Powerbooks.
