    Default What to use when cleaning the inside of a MacPro

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    I find my MacPro tower builds up with a lot of dust and fluff after use every few months.

    What can people advise to use?

    Something like a mini vacuum or dry air blower.

    Any advise on successful tools would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Avoid vacuums as unless they are excellent quality there is a risk of static discharge, for this reason I only ever use cans of electronic/computer safe compressed air.

    And I've seen it done, in 25 years of working in IT you see darn near everything.... including someone using an air compressor in a garage to blow dust out and then wondering why things no longer work with a thin film of goodness knows what over everything...
