I don't know whereelse to put this...

1. Anyway, is it ok to give the laptop screen a regular cleaning with a microfiber cloth and cleaning solution (by regular, I mean every couple of days?) And will overzealous cleaning (with light pressure, not heavy) with cleaning solution remove the layer/coating of the screen? My O-C brother found solution streaks left from my cleaning and he removed them by passing over it carefully a couple of times with the microfiber (kinda like how he buffs his car) and solution.

This is the cleaner I used btw:

but the cloth, I got from an optical shop.

2. Some minute streaking residue were left in the extreme corners of the screen. Should I just let it go or will it affect my laptop in the long run?

3. Is it worth the trouble to get those LCD protector stickers - the one you put over the laptop lcd?

4. What's the average lifespan and durability of an Asus notebook? Specifically an X-80N (AMD turion x2)? And how long will it last me if I take care of it well?

1. Try using as little solution as possible
2. it's the liquid left on the screen more than the streaking
3. Personally, I don't think so
4. You come across as rather intelligent. I'm sure it should last as long as you continue to care for it.

Thanks for the tips. What would constitute overcleaning, by the way? And in response to your #1 answer, I was led to believe that cleaner stains and streaks were caused by the lack of solution to which the dust gets suspended to, hence they are left there. Won't less solution mean more streaks then? Finally, would the solution remove (or did it already remove) my lcd's protective coating?

I also have other laptop related questions but i'll just open up a new thread as they are unrelated to this one.

Thanks again mr. garmanma.

I have yet to find a definitive answer. Robert Herron Head lab rat at http://dl.tv/index.php preaches no solution at all, just a cloth
