I always wondered why they didn't equip the fan areas on computers with heppa
filters. I've always heard that dust was an issue with desktop computers when
they first started to be more widely used and developed in the eighties (ah
that makes me feel older!) . I haven't heard much talk about this lately and
figured either they worked out the issue with temp and dust or there was just
more concern because the things were so bloody expensive when they first came
out.

I've had a number of Macs give up the ghost on me over the years and when I
have peeked inside to check for any vital signs of life I have often noticed
the presence of a very fine dust starting at the vent ports. Never seen any
"minox chewing on the energy cables" but I have had mother boards go.
