Pretty much I don't want to keep buying a can of air each time I need to clean.  I want something already there.  My cousin told me to get an electrical can of air but which one is good/safe for a computer desktop and the inside?

This Electric Duster was recommended on a different forum I frequent.  I haven't purchased it yet, but it is in my wish list.  The reviews are positive.  Even though it is listed as a vacuum, it blows, not sucks.

Here are two more, bet there is a few more out there.  I have a buddy with the Hurricane he loves it, I am tempted to get one myself my old squeeze ball is getting tired but eliminates all possibility of static.

You can always use a vaccuum to suck things out, or if you have a shop vac you can use the exhaust port with some of the fine adapters (they sell kits now that have little brushes and mini tips for vaccums)

 

Or you can use an air compressor set to low pressure output.

 

if you have either of those that is.

Vacuums have been known to cause static which is deadly for electronics.

If you want a vacuum you should be using something like the 3M 497AJM 120V Portable Electronic Vacuum Cleaner (which looks to be discontinued)

The 3M Service Vacuum Cleaner, SV-497AJM, ESD Tools, 115V looks to be the replacement.
