Best Air Compressor for my needs.

I am looking for an air compressor that I can use for cleaning a lawn mower, air tires, and has a variable output system to lower output enough to clean a computer out without damaging the circuitry.  I have looked at several models, but I find myself confused about what would be best.  I am looking for one with at least a 1 gallon tank, and is relatively quiet, and under $200/

RF Aurora,


Home Depot sells a small "pancake" type compressor from Porter-Cable for $100 that has a 3 1/2 gallon tank and is capable of 135psi.  It has a pressure gauge for both the tank and also the line pressure, so that you can throttle down the pressure for your computer dust removing uses. It will also, however, do such things as fill your car tires or power a pneumatic nailer ( not included). It will not power such things as spray guns or air driven power tools which require a large volumn of air. There is also a water drain on the bottom of the tank to avoid spritzing water while blowing off those computer parts.


Hope this has helped
