    Totally turdy usless things.

    If cleaning keyboards, just tip them upside down and tap
    until everything falls out.
    For PCs, you can use normal vacuum cleaner hose together
    with brush to brush out dust.
    Don't breath in that dust - its mostly human skin
    and can end up giving you allergic response if you let
    it start flying everywhere when you switch the PC back on.

    Those little vacuums are not powerful enough to do much beyond keyboard
    cleaning. There is no neat way to clean the inside; you need to blow
    the dust away with a can of compressed air.

    Never use a vacuum cleaner on the inside of a machine as there is too
    much chance of static electricity damaging a component, as well as a
    possibility that you'll suck up some jumpers. Also, do not use air from
    a compressor as that air can contain water or oil and is often at too
    high a pressure.

    A one inch paint or pastry brush can be used to GENTLY remove stubborn
    stuff such as accumulations on the top of the heat sink that the air
    can didn't remove as well as the built up gunk on fan blades.

    For tidying up a bird cage perhaps, but not for a pc.
