Whatever you do, use a grounding strap from the nozzle to the computer chassis. Even with a plastic nozzle.

"I have no idea what the difference between the pancake and the conventional tank is."

There is no difference except for the shape of the tank.

You could just get either compressor and this twenty-piece accessories kit and be done with it.

I would say especially with a plastic nozzle. A metal nozzle tends to disperse static charges before the build up. A plastic one will act like a storage cell and build up quite a bit of charge with all the air running through it.

The full house vacuum system in the chemical plant where I worked used metal pipe with a continuos #6 bare copper ground wire fastened along every length for the entire system. The concrete floor was poured over copper screening welded together with #300MCM copper wire welded from the copper mesh to each metal support beam in the building. All motors were totally enclosed and all fuses and relays were routed to an isolated electric room. All cast iron air lines were welded as were the stainless steel production pipes. All electric control boxes were cast aluminum blow up proof as were the 120 volt ac twist lock plugs and the 440 ac volt twist lock welder plugs. The roof was designed to blow off in case of explosion. All production processes were capped with nitrogen gas. All areas protected with foam ceiling nozzles and nozzles in the storage bins in case of fire. The production 12" pipes which carried powdered chemical were protected with "water explosion balls" activated by pressure. Production chemicals heated by hot oil (600F) and cooled by water.
If you want to be safe there are a lot of things you can do and I only mentioned a few.
