Currently, my computer room is also the designated room for smoking cigars because it has an exhaust fan. Will smoking cigars near my computer mess it up?

Well, unless you can scent a flavour of your motherboard in the cigar it's ok I guess
My friend who is a computer nerd would criticize you, but I believe it is not that bad. You may want a new computer in a year or too any way

Lol, yeah don't use the computer as an ash tray. I have heard that over time smoke can cause damage to some of the electrical components, but you would have to smoke a lot for that to happen.

I had no plans to use my computer as an ash try! Hah, I love my computer way to much for that. I do not even smoke every day so I think it will be fine. Thanks for the opinions.

If you are concerned about smoke and your computer you should also be concerned about dust. In homes with forced air heat, which is a lot, computers have a shorter life span. I recommend you get it a computer cover.

I had no idea about that. It does make sense because people with asthma have more attacks if they live in forced air heated homes. I suppose a dust cover is called for.

Yes, I would worry more about dust affecting computer performance than smoke, especially if smoking is not an everyday occurrence.

I should probably get a dust cover too; do they make those for laptops?

Please please please don't smoke next to your computer. I've already lost a laptop this year because of the buildup of soot on the cooling system. If you're a few feet away from the computer then you're okay if there is an extractor fan or an open window, but typing and smoking would be a horrible idea. Don't make my mistake!

If that's where you feel it is best for you to smoke, then go for it.  Just as long as you have a spot where you can sit and enjoy it.

Smoking in the same room as your computer is no problem. I wouldn't place a cigar or any source of smoke near any of the intake vents though.

I can't imagaine that you'd want to smoke a fine cuban cigar while working on a computer anyway. I  just like to relax and enjoy my cigar in a nice comfy chair and listen to good music or maybe watch tv..but maybe that's just me!

The last place I would choose as my cigar lounge spot would be my computer room.  Partly because of all the smoke possibly damaging electrical components, and partly because it doesn't seem too chill (not my office anyway).

No, cigar smoking should not damage your computer in a major way, unless you are really going to town and polluting that room to an extreme degree. Like others have said, dust can actually pose more of a threat than smoking can.

Regardless of what people say, I don't want stale cigar smoke emanating from my computer. My computer is in the same room where we do a lot of entertaining, so it wouldn't fly with the spouse. I'm happy to oblige. There's lots of space on the decks and patios.

Actually, speaking from experience, smoking around your computer on a consistent basis WILL, in fact, damage it.

Last year, I had two power supplies go out on me. Largely due to the smoke in the room. I opened up the power supply case, and the amount of gunk caked to the inside and in the fan core was unbelievable. Granted it was from smoking cigarettes, too.

But, yes, smoking around your PC can damage it.
