Cleaning the X61 Tablet Screen Help!

2008-05-04, 3:42 AM
Hi There,
 
I am very new to Lenovo and just switched from a Mac Book Pro to this new X61 Tablet.  It has all of the bells and whistles needed for my Real Estates transactions but one BIG problemHow do you clean the screen?  What do you all use that will not hurt the screen but will clean all of the oil from hands on screen from hands while writing on the tablet.  It gets dirty really easy and I just want to be able to clean it so it looks licely and the smudges are not a distraction.
Please any advice on a good proven method of cleaning the screen on this awesome machine. 
Thanks in advance. 
Robert

verbatim makes a LCD solution that you can use, it would give you the best result... little water with lint free tissue is also okay, but don't use solvents...

Our LCD TV user guide recommends white vinegar on a clean, soft cloth. (Not too wet, obviously.)
 
I have found this to work OK my tablet, but not great. Smudges love this thing. Luckily, after you get over it, you stop noticing them pretty quickly.

microfiber cloth is okay for general wiping of LCD, but it is usually not very good when its wet...

I've tried a cleaner meant for eye glasses, but I've had much better success with a 50/50 blend of rubbing alcohol and water.
