cleaning dust from a computer?

I wanted to pick this up for cleaning my computer If I could find it in Canada but somebody told me "You are not going to get all that low level dust off there with a vac."

If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

I usually just hose my down TBH, make sure to leave it unplugged with PSU off and let it sit in the sun for a few days.

The datavac is great, but canned air works almost as well.

Just use the metro, it's very good for dusting.

If the tiny remnants of dust bother you, use a little hobby model painter brush with non-conducting brush parts. Of course I'd only ever bother doing that if you where about to sell the PC and wanted it to look as clean as possible, as it's a complete waste of time after a metro shot.

My friend recommended me the same duster. He said it removed dust in places he didn't think there would be any. I have not bought it yet, but I will soon, so I do not know from first hand experience how well it works.

Bad idea, q-tips get shredded apart by computer parts and leave traces of thread all over.
