    They are good and the tools I had with mine included a small nozzle / brush but you can't really get between the fan blades on a cpu heatsink so you need high pressure like the blower with the thin tube attachment (or a compressor) to get that out. A Vac even a good one like the one I linked won't do that. Vac / Blower are best used together or just get the blower and some good masks and ask the cleaner to vac the room after - lol

    The VAC is strong enough to blast any evidence of dust away! (it's gets quite addictive just like using a jet power wash, you want to clean everything!)

    Combined with:
    LCD, TV, and PC Screen Cleaning Equipment, Training and Consumables - TFT/LCD Screen Cleaner 125Ml (great on TFT screens)
    and
    LCD, TV, and PC Screen Cleaning Equipment, Training and Consumables - Microfibre Cloth (buy one get one FREE) (cheaper elsewhere)

    your computers/laptops will look like new.

    To be fair, I've managed to suck keys off an RM laptop just by opening the lid a bit too fast.
