Well when in doubt, could always just clean the PC outside..

Atleast that way if the wind is blowing and even if its not the dust wont go back into the house or the case.

I see why you are confused, you aren't familiar with what was being discussed. Despite having vacuum in the name, it is not a vacuum cleaner. Here's a link:

I assure you, I have not been rolling dice of any kind and I've been building computing systems for decades now, starting when all that was involved was soldering electronics on self etched circuit board.

No worries, your advice was sound though, I would never use an actual household vacuum cleaner on a PC.

It's a shame he didn't try to turn his computer on after he finished.

Why? The chance of temporary cold temperatures actually destroying anything is converging to zero.
