You need to clean out the dust that has accumulated on the fans of your desktop computer. Why is it important to use a vacuum cleaner that has been designed for computer systems?

A) Non-computer vacuums don’t have enough power

B) Computer vacuums minimize the potential for static electricity discharges

C) Computer vacuums have larger debris storage areas

D) Computer vacuums will not suck up any silicon-based materials

E) Computer vacuums have blinking lights, pretty colors, and message displays


The answer: B) Computer vacuums minimize the potential for static electricity discharges

Vacuum cleaners that are designed for computers use materials that help minimize the potential for static electricity. Dust can create static electricity as it moves around in the air, and some plastic materials and motors can contribute to static electricity buildup. By using different materials and design, a vacuum cleaner designed for computers can limit static electricity discharges.
