I second the eyeglass cleaner and microfiber cloth method for the screen. Costco sells like 2 spray bottles and three cloths for about $7 which is enough for a year of cleaning to every single LCD or plasma screen you own.

I clean the rest with 91% rubbing alcohol. Works great and evaporates quocly and without trace.

Just buy screen cleaner. I bought some eyeglasses cleaner and it had alcohol! Not good for your monitor.

Bought that from Best Buy a while ago and it's some good stuff. Maybe use it every few months so it should last a long time.

no they don't. If anything it has more moisture.
Sure some high end setups may shoot some lubricant to help with tool lubrication, but 9 times out of 10 people at home will have a standard small Craftsman or something from Home Depot or Lowes. These do not have lubricant in them.

I have used mine a couple times since getting it (don't move or clean my machines enough anymore) but damn is it nice. I can waste all the air I want, and it does a better job then compressed air due to the volume.

Bruised apples, moldy oranges, what does it matter? Spraying electronics with a generic shop compressor is asking for trouble.

Again, I've been using compressed air of various origins for cleaning out computers and fans for at least decade now. The tiny bit of moisture or lubricant is no more hurtful to electronics than the shit that's in the air anyhow.

Just ask my old video card fan. Accidentally smacked it with the tip of the nozzle. I had the nozzle between the fan blades to stop it from spinning and I must have lifted my hand. It spun fast and fan blades went a flying I needed a new VC anyway. Gave it to my buddy to afro engineer.

Glad to hear you haven't had any problems.

What, in the air we breath, could possibly be worse for electronics than condensation or machine lube?

At least you were aware that you should immobilize the fan. It's unfortunate that you bunged the card.

If you have a macbook air 11 incher, I would WOULD recommend a cover......a hard one. In case it drops.

Aside from that, I use micro fibers (bought a huge bag of them at walmart for 5 bucks) and no liquids, the microfiber picks it all up....

And canned air.

That's all.
