Caring for my Laptop

Hey all, I've got a Compaq Pres R3000 and have a few questions on caring for
my laptop.

1- Keyboard. I'm embarassed to admit how much dust is actually in my
household. Never realised it until I started seeing it accruing on my laptop
monitor and keys. Is there any special suction/ or air-spray & such that's
good for a keyboard? Or should wiping with a dry cloth every so often

2- Monitor. Hmmmm, did I mention monitor dust? Well, there's also a few tiny
smudges here and there and I'm ultra careful to not be wiping down my
monitor without being sure I know I'm doing it the right way? Any real-First
Hand Experience out there as to what's best and safest?

As you can all tell (or maybe not) I'm still treating my 4 month old laptop
as if it's a newborn baby (scared that is to do anything that'll screw it
up....hell, it cost me enough).

Thanks in advance for suggestions, insight and other relevant comments.

Canned "air" is fine.

For screen dust, I prefer to use a soft paintbrush and whisk it off
lightly. For smudges, eyeglass cleaner (the non-ammonia type designed
for coated lenses) on a soft tissue. Don't use canned air because you
might freeze the display.
