Guys,
I've got a Dell laptop and every time I open the thing up, there is dust all over the screen that makes it hard to see properly.
I need some sort of an anti-static cleaner to prevent this happening.
I blew the keyboard out with a can of air the other day, but the dust keeps coming back for some strange reason.
One other thing, what sort of cloth would you suggest for cleaning the screen surface, as it looks like the screen face could be rather easily scratched.
Any ideas?.

Hey Mike,
I went to their site and typed in "screen clean" and this was the first hit of many. It would probably be good to use a system that they have already given their blessing on.
Merry Christmas,
Joe

Back at ya Joe!.
And I back it up with a Happy New Year.
Don't try and out-Seasons Greetings me!.
I tried a leather chamios (sp?), it worked great
All I want to do is clean the screen not polish it.
Thanks a heap for your advice, mate!.

I didn't do any further research other than finding that Dell FAQ link. A chamois would certainly be soft enough but does it help the static problem? I was just wondering if those anti-static sheets that you toss in the dryer, such as "Bounce" or "Cling-Free", might help without smudging or smearing.
