    Really? When did you move to Arizona, USA?

    All seriousness aside, it's pretty dusty where I live, too. That's why I have air filters on my computer and blocked as many air leaks on it as I can. I can dust a surface using a damp cloth to avoid stirring up the dust and still get a new layer within a couple of hours. I have to vacuum the outside of the dust filters on my computer every few days and open it up no less than once a month to blow it and the filters out no less than once a month. If went any longer between cleanings, I would have to drag it outside to clean it and I'm too old for that nonsense.

    Same here, I leave that plastic on forever. That shiny black is the worst, the 1st time you dust it off, scratch city

    I leave mine on until it starts to look ratty. I blow or vacuum the dust off to avoid scratching but, sooner or later, it will happen (I happen to prefer later).

    I see people who leave the cellophane wrap on lampshades-forever. I tell 'em that's for shipping and protection till it's sold. "Oh really?"

    I got some micro fiber cloths which do a good job of surface dust removal. I use one on the LCD monitors and TV we have.

    I wish all manufacturers would texturize their surfaces for this very reason. Piano black is great for speakers, furniture and pianos but gloss black plastic is just stupid.

    I use the microfiber cloths and LCD cleaner to clean my LCD screens, camera lenses, scanner plattens, etc. However, I blow or vacuum off as much dust as possible first.

    oh I can totally understand you I have almost the same case like you do.. I have clean the Filters with Vacuum also I go to job and I clean all of my room once a week and cover things like mouse/controllers/keyboard with a cloth as well as the screens and my pc case so it don't get dusty when im not using it... but still other parts I have to clean with soft dry cloth first and then vacuum that cloth which I cleaned the dust with and then finally wipes of each and every dust particle with another soft wet cloth.. do this with everything in the room and last I Vacuum clean the Carpet it takes at 2 to 3 hours

    aha that's why I don't actually want to take it off as when I take a closer look with a bright light on the body of my old Samsung I can see hundreds of lines even though I never cleaned it with a hard cloth just that Glossy bodies catches scratches and dust so quickly...

    I ripped out the carpet in my home because, 1. It was ugly as sin and, 2. it catches too much dust and doesn't do my allergies any good. Vacuuming a carpet will stir up a lot of dust.

    I have glossy plastic surfaces that aren't scratched. My monitor is old enough to have grandchildren and it's still pretty much scratch free. I blow off all the dust before cleaning it, using a soft brush to loosen it if necessary (the blower I use is the hyperthyroid offspring of a leaf blower on steroids). If I tried to wipe the dust off, I might as well use sandpaper.
