In my opinion these cans of air are a waste of money, a soft hair paintbrush and a hoover is all that you need.

Why spend money on compressed air cans? Go in to Argos or similar and buy a foot pump of the sort that blows up footballs or airbeds and similar. Cheap as chips .They usually come with different nozzles. I have used on for years to clean out PCs. No problems with dampness residue or anything else.

Can I just add if you are intending to blow the dust out of the computer, don't, the dust comprises of all sorts of nasties that you really don't want to breath in, like dead skin. You could end up with all sorts of health problems, as Chronus says a brush and vacuum clean is a much better option.

I have to clean the servers out sometimes in our hospital ITU and we have special vacuum cleaners with filters that stop the dust escaping to the outside world. I wouldn't want to breath in any dust in that environment.

Another option is battery operated computer vacuums enter link description here or you could always look at Amazon (they are sure to have them!)

I certainly wouldn't want a USB powered one unless I had a separate power supply for it. I hate to think of using it while the computer is powered up.
