    We all know dust accumulates inside our MacPros thru the years. Is it advisable to have the interiors cleaned and dusted off? Someone told me sometimes too much accumulated dust may cause breakdowns and for some parts not to work properly. Comments appreciated. Thanks.

    I usually use a air can duster with my Mac Pro shut down of course, works good for me.

    You don't want to get it wet so it's best to bring it to the dry cleaner.

    Use canned air. You can get it at your local electronics store.

    I dust out my computers once a month or so.

    Don't let the dust accumulate through the years... blast the dust out at least every couple months, especially if you run your computer 24/7 like I do. When clean the dust out I usually remove the memory risers and spray between the DIMMs, then remove each hard drive and spray those down too.

    I hope you realize mine was a joke. Used compressed air.
