    Where to buy a can of compressed air?

    Anyone know where I can buy a can of compressed air?

    I don't know any hardware shops around here, stationary stores I've been to don't seem to have it and the local HK'ers don't seem to have a clue what it is either. Anyone?

    Need to clean out dust from the laptop.. never been cleaned out before, and it gets really hot really fast. Loads of tutortials online, gonna give it a shot.

    Thanks

    If you can't find it in the local computer centres then it can't be bought legally.

    I thought that I saw it the other day. Can't remember where. Either 298 computer centre wan chai or at a hardware store. If I see it again I'll let you know.

    Surely cans of compressed air are legal in Hong Kong?

    right, found it today at Golden Arcade centre..
    tried loads of shops in the basement floor before one of them had it. Lots of computer shops don't stock them; the shop I went to only had like 5 cans

    thanks all for your replies XDD

    The specialist camera shops such as Wing Shing (not the tourist area shops) have them as well. Compressed air is commonly used to clean lenses.

    If you need a few, consider a compressor. I bought one on Taobao for around 300 or so.

    thanks for the tip
    still got like 1/3 left in the can I bought.. my computer seems to be shutting off less now, but now and again it turns off randomly when I have too many programs open
