Everybody who’s ever done any kind of work with computer hardware knows just how much of a pain in the backside dust buildup can be, and how potentially damaging it can be over time.
That’s exactly why I was a more than a little surprised to see a clients computer come in from being repaired looking like this. (Sorry about the poor quality pictures, the light was not the best for taking photos with a camera phone.)
The company doing the repairs performed a motherboard replacement, and while I don’t expect machines to ever be squeaky clean, I really believe that repair places need to apply copious use of the compressed air before returning a computer to a client.
Tip: You can clean your computer, help prevent those fans becoming clogged and avoid some potential overheating by investing in a can of compressed air.
