Default Can anyone recommend a good PC vacuum?

As what the topic says; I need a powerful enough and small enough vacuum to get into those small spaces of a PC and keyboard.

I don't know where you live, so here's a Google search which brings up plenty of choice... http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=e...acuums&spell=1

I just use this feather duster like thing for my PC. I found it in the trash at the slavation army and thought it could actually be useful. It works great for cleaning my PC out.

Hmmmm...

I wanted something which would work easily and that doesn't always need to be bought again (ie compressed air).

Be very careful with a vacuum in a pc. If you touch the wrong thing with a metal nozzle you can fry the components. When air travels through a metal nozzle at a high velocity it creates static electricity that will discharge on contact to the components and fry them.
