can you clean under them like on a desktop by removing them or is compressed air the only way to go?
laptop keys are kept in place by a weird design , 2 cross plastic and a plastic nipple used as spring. some of these can be easily falling up, the newer models have these nipples underneath a frame.
u can vacuum and use compressed air BUT:
. use vacuum at low speed and make sure u put ur fingers on the key area that u r vacuuming - i lost a few by doing this
. commpress air is probably a bit safer, but still recommending putting your palm over it when u apply the commpressed air
dirt does not easily get into the laptop via the keyboard, since it has a flat plate underneath, separating the outside to the inner compartment
