Come to think about it, we never cleaned our computers in work either. They might have looked like those pictures.

As far my desk-top and laptops go, I never had them long enought to get dirty... :flowers:

Yuck! Amazed the computer would even turn on with that kind of gunk!

Have to clean ours every 3 months since there is new house construction all around us plus we have kitties.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

You'd definitely want to do that outside. You'd also have to disassemble the fan and heat sink. You'd also have to remove the power supply

I clean the innards of my computer once a month.
That way it never gets to the point where it's so thick you could grow potatoes in it.

And for the next 3 years, it will be cleaned every 6 months by my computer tech.
Got this wonder of modern technology in May, and it has a 3 year warranty.
The catch is to keep the warranty in force, you have to take in every 6 months and let them clean the inside.
