Hi there,
Can someone tell me the best place to buy compressed air to clean a PC out with (as cheap and safe to use in a PC as possible please). I'm in the UK so really it needs to be a site based in the UK.

Thanks

The cheapest place I've found is Wal-Mart (USA) I think Wal-Mart has stores in the UK but they go under another name.

Yes Walmart's chain of Stores over here are called Asda, You could also try Staples or PC World as well for Compressed Air.

I'm quite sure PC World and Staples sell Compressed Air, but not sure if Asda does never seen it there but you could have a Look at the bigger Stores they have

Hi all,
I have searched on all 3 websites and can't seem to find any, so I don't know if they have some in store thats not listed on their websites.

Thanks

Sometimes websites won't have smaller items listed, even though they are available in the stores.
I looked at the Wal Mart site, and it wasn't listed. If it is there, I didn't see it.
Call the stores and ask if they have compressed air.
If you go to the store, check the electronics section first, that's usually where it's located.

I've seen compressed air advertised on the UK website of eBay. You can also get it here.
