    I have all sorts of dandruff and stuff stuck in the holes next to my keyboard on my MBP. (I don't know if they're for fans or speakers, actually.) Any tips on getting it out? I've tried turning it upside down and tapping it, but to no avail.

    packing tape? Press it against, if the gunk is near the surface, it'll lift it off. Be sure not to use 'strong' tape though or one that would leave residue.

    You could used a can of compressed air to blow it out or you could also trying using a vacuum with a dust attachment on it.

    In his defense...you probably should have stuck to using "gunk" rather than giving us specifics as to what was actually getting stuck in the holes. LOL

    :p
