Nice advice.

this is ok on normal laptop screens as well as the "True Life" Screens and HD screens?
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Ha, that's what I was going to say.

I use a simple non-scratch cloth that they make to clean eyeglasses or similar things.

It can be bad to apply windex directly onto a laptop screen (or any LCD screen) Spray a paper-towl with windex first and then clean.

No, no, no... no ammonia based cleaning products on LCD's. Probably won't hurt if you do it once in a while, but why run the risk of ruining an expensive piece of equipment?

The rubbing alcohol solution is probably the best bet.
