    Call me silly (*pause*), but it seems to me that if you don't want any dust on your floor and furniture, you could carry out this procedure someplace where your floor and furniture are not!

    That means disconnecting everything and bringing it downstairs and outside :( and this tower probably weighs 50 lb (its practically a server).

    Okay fine. You could separate the computer from its environment. Say... with a large, plastic bag.


    Though I really don't see why you're avoiding wielding the vacuum cleaner in the first place...

    Hey, we saw your carpet when you posted that picture of the bookcase; it needs to be shampooed anyway, so why worry about a little dust? :tongue:

    You have how much of a dust cloud emitting from your computer parts?

    Edit: dammit, dammi, "cloud" not "could". I really love the edit feature here, moonbear.
