    What do you (all) use to clean dust, cat hair, etc., from a computer?
    I've used the "hose" extension on a regular vacuum cleaner, but I
    suspect that I've just been lucky that I haven't done damage with
    either ESD or knocking something loose...

    I think the usual recommendation is canned compressed air. I actually
    have, in the past, saved some freeze mist cans after they stopped
    freezing, because they still had air in them.

    ESD danger with that method.
