Wow, there does not seem to be any clear guides for cleaning a laptop of dust. Some say don’t use compressed air because it can have water. Others say don’t use a shop vac because it can have ESD. Unless you buy an expensive one with no ESD. I could probably link to 50 videos that all contradict each other.

So what is the preferred method of getting rid of dust? I know to put something in the fan to stop it from spinning and to use short bursts. Seems like a can of compressed air with the straw thing help upright might be best. Thanks for your help. I trust Toms experts to let me know.
