Hi Ciara...Yeah...I have to clean my PC at least once a month as it does p/u quite a bit of dust. A few puffs of canned air into my PC\Laptops does wonders. I do the same to all my computers\Laptops. I think I'm going to give my hardware a cleaning...that's for the reminder... :)

2 smokers (myself and my wife) and 2 cats so yeah, I hear you. I actually found that using dryer sheets as disposable filters helps a ton.
