Can I vacuum the inside of my PC?
Thereof, is it safe to vacuum the inside of my computer?
It's bad to clean the inside of your computer with a vacuum cleaner because vacuuming creates a large static build up that could (and most likely will) discharge into the sensitive electronics inside your computer case.
Secondly, is a vacuum considered a computer? Vacuum cleaners generate static electricity that could easily mean the death of your system. In fact, get that PC away from anything associated with vacuum cleaners—the carpet, for instance. There are 'computer vacuums' which advertise anti-static features, such as the DataVac , but they aren't cheap.

Can I vacuum my keyboard?
You can use vacuum cleaner, but make sure your laptop's keyboard doesn't have "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum. A can of compressed air will safely blow dust right out of the little crevices between your keys.
