What is this?

I live in Stellenbosch, South Africa, and I came across this strange little bug walking across my computer.
It is less than a milimeter in size and brownish/grey in colour.
I tried taking pics of it, the attached few are the best I could get.
We sure got plenty of submissions from South Africa today, but the two we posted we were not able to identify to the species level. Your insect is a Lacewing Larva, though we really like the common name Aphid Wolf. The debris on its back is most likely the carcasses of prey.
