    You'll need to check with your insurance company about having more pressure cylinders on site though.

    Rather than blow the dust into the air around you, you really want a vacuum cleaner - I rather fancy the handheld Dyson.

    For small numbers of pcs, a Giottos Rocket (Amazon) works well - outside preferably - and never needs refilling.

    Air compressors can get water in the line so be careful. They do make inline filters to remove the water so if i were go that route and do a lot of computers I would be sure to get one.

    Hadn't realised the dyson was only good for 15 mins, although if it's any good it will clear a few PCs in that time.

    Since moving to nettops, we haven't had a dust issue. Before that, vacuum cleaners were the way to go combined with aerosol sprays for the heatsinks.

    Yes because we all know what to you when you ground yourself after building up static electricity, crack. Which is why electronic components can be killed by it.

    The moving air in the vacuum can create high levels of static which is why specific anti-static ones are available for these purposes.

    It's sat behind my desk. I am not allowed to use it during term time so it will have to wait until next week (yes, we break up on Friday!)

    We have one of these as well, it's all you need, too powerful and you will end up damaging something.

    How long have you had this Chris? Just read the reviews and one of them pretty much says that it died really quickly when being used for a student ICT Suite!
