    But wouldn't crumbs and stuff get more stuck down there?

    I'll give it a try anyway though, can't hurt.

    Well tip the MacBook Pro on its side and spray at an angle. It should be fine.

    I take a piece of packaging tape, stick on there and then peel it off; that usually gets the surface stuff off; then I use compressed air.

    If you want to be *really* thorough, you can take apart your laptop and use compressed air to blow it out from the inside.

    But you'd have to *really* want to be thorough.

    I use a Dyson with the brush attachment. Guess a cloth over a standard hoover is perhaps slightly gentler than the bristles though.

    Wouldn't that kind of damage the finish seeing it's a metal brush with a scraper? :confused:
