How not to care for your PC

I'll just leave this here so everyone can witness what I was just forced to look at.

I hate my friends.

I also hate people that treat their computers like this.

Once had a PC returned for repair, reported problem; general deadness. Wish I'd taken pictures now.

Apparently it had been used for 2-3 years in a kitchen of a greasy spoon and it showed. The once cream coloured case look like it had been deep fried and was now a golden brown. Dust balls were the least of the problems as every surface inside was covered in fatty residue.

If I remember rightly we ended up claiming it wasn't worth touching and sold them a new one.

All the dust in the world can never be worse than a PC owned by a chain-smoker. When that stuff gets thick enough that there are strings of it, that's the worst. I used to work at a computer repair shop that had a steady clientele of middle-aged smoking men, so I saw it a lot.

Though that picture of the one with the cockroaches is probably the worst of all. And that dead frog...WTF?

Hm.... what's the best way to go about cleaning a laptop without voiding the warranty? And for the record... I AM playing from a desert, though I'm pretty sure my laptop isn't nearly as horrid as some of those pics.

Poor frog :(

Those pictures make me want to open my laptop and clean it, even though I'm pretty sure it's not that bad apart from some stray hairs.

I have hepa filters on my intake fans. I smoke at the computer, but every year when I open it up to do a spring clean/rebuild on it (and replace the filters), it's almost as clean as the day I first put it together. The filters get pretty nasty though.
