    Hi guys,

    I didnt find any other thread where this was addressed so I bring it up here.

    I was just thinking about the new fan design of the RMBP and I was wondering how dust resistant it would be.

    I am thinking like this. The Mac sucks in air over its holes on the bottom to cool the machine. So for me this means it sucks in all the dust of any surface that it is standing on.

    Is there a way to clean the fan or any other solution, or am I just too scared?:eek:

    Don't worry! Just open it once a year or every 6 month to clean it up if you're worry, I don't think it is THAT bad :D

    Exactly, I opened up my 13" MBP once a month to clean the dust out using a air can.

    Just spray some compressed air into the vents and it'll clean it pretty good.

    Pentalobe screwdrivers are so proprietary that they can be bought from dozens of sellers for pennies apiece.

    i would like to see those for pennies a piece. in all seriousness. even finding the tri wing screw for batteries of the 'older' macs cost me 3 bucks. I'm not try to offend you or be snobby, but really where can you buy these s cheap?
