how good is the airflow through the swiffer? and those things work by creating static electricity, so I'm a bit hesitant to throw one in my computer...

I thought for a second about the static electricity part, but figured with all that plastic and rubber it contacts first I highly doubt any of the static could get to the vital stuff....as for the airflow, my temps are the same as there were before so hey why not...
