I can't emphasise enough how important this is. I live an Shanghai which is one of the most polluted cities around. Recently I noticed that my Macbook would sometimes die under load and that even at idle, the cpu temp was between 80ºC and 90ºC. Initially I thought it was the extra load driving my newly acquired 27" Cinema display causing the extra heat. However I stripped it down and removed all of the accumulated dust from the fan exhaust. The results were immediate and impressive. Now at idle, the cpu temp sits between 55ºC and 65ºC Even under load, it rarely tops 85ºC, its previous idle temperature.
