    I'm not sure if this is even possible, but is it ever necessary or beneficial to clean out your laptop? What i mean by this is that does the dust and lint that inevitably gets into the computer ever result in heat manangement problems? I feel like the fan on my 12 inch pb runs more now than it did when i first got it about 4 months ago.


    Thanks for your input.

    If you feel that dust is effecting your performance I would advise you find a local Apple repair center and have them take your computer apart and de-dust it. Altough dust does not usually hurt the computer.

    If you are worried about the temperatures of your PowerBook, get a little app called Temperature Monitor .


    Run it for a week or so and take note of the temperatures they will go up and down depending on how much you are doing on your Mac.
