That does sound unusual. Perhaps you're in a particularly dusty environment.

My rMBP has a bit of dust on the screen but that occurs over the course of time. I don't something on your Mac is causing this, as much as you're in a place that seems dustier then normal

If I wipe my ACD and MBP down once a month, that's a lot.

Did you try moving your office around so its not so close to the window, there's also those air purifiers you may want to look into that.

Just think, if your laptop is showing all that stuff, you realize you're breathing that stuff in as well.

Dirt or dust? If it's dirt you're doing it wrong. If it's dust then you should look into improving the environment you're working in and dealing with the source(s) of dust. Are you using anything to clean the air?
