    some pretzel crumbs/dust accidentally spilled on top of my keyboard and some went under the keyboard. I've tried blowing and turning the laptop upside down while blowing & gently shaking, but when i lift the right side, then the left side, I can hear the faint sound of very tiny particles shifting from one side to the other. It's not that big of a deal, but I'd like to get them out of there. What is my best bet?

    Thanks

    Edit: This is a Macbook, not a Macbook Pro

    If you have a can of compressed air handy (available at office supply stores or Fry's)...that would work better than just blowing with your mouth.

    i think thats just how the cookie crumbles, mate.






    ;) Try getting a can of compressed air and blowing it out. Otherwise, I don't think there's much we can do here, and it doesn't affect the computer anyway.

    Compressed air is my bet too, or if you have a vaccum with a brush attatchment....
