I've read from a few different resources differing accounts of the best way to clean the dust from your laptop.

Some say to use compressed air; some say compressed air can sometimes blow dust further into the laptops ports, insides, etc. and to use a vacuum with a small brush if one is available.

Also - I thought cleaning would involve removing some of the casing, but some sites (including my manufacturers) say to direct the compressed air through the air vents in the laptop casing?

My question is, what do you all do to clean the dust from your laptops and what do you use?

Anyone out there use one of these vacuums? Do you open up your laptop or just aim it at the case vents?

I use copious amounts of highly compressed air. I have a compressor and a nice sized tank with different nozzles. A few are small enough to snake inside vents and I let her rip.

Sometimes I take the laptop almost completely apart, but normally the battery, the hdd tray, etc... are easy. Sometimes even the keyboard and such.

Then there is also ethanol and DeIonized water.
