    Not that we've found...Our Dells are coming up to the 4 year marker, 2 cleans per year on average..the only fan issue I've found is I have one with a knackered bearing, but..well, it's not dead, just a bit noisy.

    I actually tend to leave the systems running while I do it..probably not recommended practise, but heyho..seems to work well..

    We have a compressor that we we store in the premises workshop and is plugged in next to the door so we can easily do it outside! Brilliant best £130 i spent about 4 years ago when buying the cans of air at £3 a pop!!

    A much better idea than a standard Vacuum Cleaner that generates a lot of static. You can get proper hand-held anti-static vacuum cleaners but they're around the £200 mark.

    lol, cleaning the insides of PCs. My PCs are 5 to 6 years old and hardly have visible dust in them. Just have better cleaning staff to do your rooms. Keyboards take too long to clean just buy more and buy black ones.

    I used to buy £5 air dusters and paint brushes but modern(er) PCs dont seem to get that dusty as they don't require such insane cooling.

    I haven't done a good airdusting since my PII days.
