Default Dust!!!!

I am just about to take out my X800 Pro from the family PC, and well it's dusty as hell. What would be the best way to clean it without causing any anti-static charge?

Any computer or office supply store (Office Depot etc here, not sure about the UK it's been many years since I lived there.) A few quid or so.

The air from air compressors often contains small quantities of water so I'd be wary about using those.

Yeah, that was my original thought, just using a small brush and brushing away the dust. Hopefully that'll work! If not, can of compressed air!
