Anyone ever bought an anti-static vacuum cleaner?

    I've posted that question in this forum as it's mentioned in Meyer's book as a method for removing dust (after applying some compressed air).
    So anyone bought one? Where from? How much did it cost? I've got a terrible problem with dust in my PC. Was it that useful for removing dust?

    I would never buy one, someone at my work who isn't knowledgable in IT has one and he says it works for him. I'll just stick with the air duster though.

    If a system is really bad I have sometimes used an air duster in conjunction with a regular vacuum cleaner and just be careful with the business end. :) That's a good way to clean a laser printer out also. If there has been a toner explosion inside on, an air duster by itself will just make things worse.

    I use a Dyson.

    The good thing with these modern bagless ones with the transparent cylinder is that it's easy to find all the bits again and put them back in the case again.

    You know, screws, clips, ram, processor...
