Walmart sells 3 cans of memorex canned air for $18, price club also sells 3 cans for like $14. Those are the 2 places I usually buy mine. Never buy it in single cans its always more expensive.

If I recall Costco sells them for $20 for 6 cans, best deal I could find anywhere. At least I believe it was $20.

i used to use cans of compressed "air" besides being ridiculously over priced i didnt like breathing that crap in such a closed place.

now i use a paintbrush. its some kind of animal hair and not repeat not one with artificial bristles. takes quite a bit longer but it gets to everything.

cheers

BAAAD idea. Vacuum can build up a static charge and can zap your PC parts and kill them.

That and it is always possible to accidentally suck up a jumper or two.

Rob123: That would be camel hair.

Canned air + vacuum = a good idea, says I.

Though I wouldn't be putting the vacuum too close to the actual computer. I'd just use it to grab the dirt the can knocks loose...

Canned air makes good people deterant when your busy with a long gaming session and someone wants to annoy you. Flip the can and freeze some vital part of their skin =) and then carry on gaming.

But...but the idea was that you're the one in the chair, making them go away.

Why give up a perfectly good chair?

...and what if it's a female?
