    Haven't order the new MBPR yet. My main concern is whether the redesigned fans will be easier to take in dirt, making it accumulate inside the unibody compared to the old model. I really don't want to open the laptop and clean it often. Any suggestions will be appreciated. :)

    Just blow some compressed air into the vents, all the loose dirt will come out and you don't need to open it up.

    The new asymmetric fans should have no impact on dust accumulation at all. The new side vents on the MBP-RD may or may not allow more dust to accumulate, but it shouldn't be significant, either way. I recently opened my non-unibody MBP for the first time after over 4 years of heavy use and travel, and found very little dust inside... certainly not enough to cause any concern. Unless you routinely work in dust storms, I wouldn't worry about it.
