    We do every computer in the school in the holiday. Gives us a chance to tidy things up, replace broken / stolen bits, clean and disinfect mice / keyboards / monitors & more importantly - give the bill for damage to our finance team who automatically deduct the responsible departments budget for September....

    For those of you that use cans of air, I would recommend getting a small compressor, works out a lot cheaper and you can get a bit more power out of them for a cleaner looking PC. I was going to buy one till I found out my mate around the corner has a nice little one which does the job nicely.

    Only projectors really here. Just because the filters do get a little clogged. Our PC's don't seem to drag dust in. What would the point in cleaning them out anyway? If they break get it fixed under warranty.

    Did that with canned air once. The year 11 class was impressed with my flame thrower!

    Though that was what work experience was for? Failing that, one of the tasks of a apprentice

    Still could just be me though, I don't drink tea\coffee, so they need to do something

    The only things we (have time to) air dust are our Servers and Data Projectors and we only do those when we move them. Just like a few other people, we don't use cans of air any more since we came across the Datavac Electric Duster which we paid around £49 for which in under a year saved us money on expensive air duster cans.

    We used to do this to projectors, fairly regularly (couple of times a year).
    Those in CDT got done much more regularly.

    PC's were only done if they were in my office getting looked at. Otherwise the only one that got done was mine when i was adding new bits.
