Hey..I have 2 smokers and 4 dogs living in my home.And its a pretty small house.And i have never had problems with our xboxs...Once a week i use can air and spray out all my electronics..When using can air never ever shake the can or spray directly onto
the disk laser on your 360..Just shoot little puffs at a time inside diskdrives...
Mmm, dust doesn't always equal the problem, if the xbox, just like anything with a hard drive, motherboard, etc. Needs to be in a dry but cool environment, OP. Too much heat slows a system down normally. Moisture can accumulate and cause problems, so technically,
dust is the opposite as long as it doesn't get clog up in the system's fan (Back of Xbox) hope that info helps!
My house gets dusty too, but luckily my wife is like Monica from Friends and she is a clean freak so it's usually ok. I haven't had any problems dust wise, but when I am finished playing and after it has cooled down I put it in a drawer with a towel over
