    I, and I'm probably gonna get a slaggin for this, use a lint free cloth to move the dust to one place. Then get the hoover and vacuum the dust off. The hoover attachment doesn't touch the screen.
    If any of my mates see I'm giving dusting tips, I'm a dead man!!!

    Use a very slightly damp cloth (not wet or dripping) and the dust will stick to it. Same thing should be used for most electronic goods.

    what about those new pledge duster things, that have a handle and hold in the dust, surely that would be ideal?

    I use a static brush (duster) with very fine fibre to dust off the surface of the panel, stand & bezel. Also I use a 3M wipe (cloth) to clean off the persistent dust on panel, as this product would not make any scratch on the panel , but you bettr still take special care just in case. The lens cleaning paper for camera is being used to clean off some finger prints on the panel while setting up the panel & cables, I only use water for that purpose, will never use anything other than water to clean the surface, and restricted to small areas only.

    You may take a look on the 3M's wipe below as I'm sure you guys can get similar products in local stores.

    * I think the best bet is to wipe out the dust at least once a week. :)
