Compressed Air...?
 
Don't know if this is the right place to post this, but where can I get cans of compressed air to clean out some of the dust in my computer...and is it safe to do?!

Forgot to mention, I am in downtown Toronto.

I use a vacuum.

Vacuums are fine.

Just make sure you ground yourself out to build up static.

Can of compressed air and a vacuum can do wonders.

Again, don't own a vacuum, and would not put one into a 5K computer even if I did!

If you are downtown there are dozens of computer stores on College street, specifically in the Spadina area. There is a Canada Computers there as well: Canada Computers - Contact Us & Locations

But yeah, practically every second store along the strip there is a computer store.

Forgot to mention; if you have not done this before, don't worry about it. Just do short bursts (ie. don't just do one long spray).

edit: read the instructions lol
