    Nope, they didn't bring it in for cleaning. They bought a new laptop and wanted me to transfer the data. They had no issues with the dirt on the old one.:shadedshu

    Our philosophy at work is
    I'm just kidding, of course. They usually just skip to the last line there. Keeps things tidy though.

    It was the pc in the woodshop of a friend's house. Chances are lots of smoking was done in there as well.

    he he he.. if they wanna clean it just using paint brush and done, at least the dust doesnt acumulate like that.
    so i just think that no one give attention to that, yeahh its dusty but it runs well so thats fine.. too bad

    I'm guessing that there is probably a lot of dust inside, maybe clogging the fan etc though, eventually it will overheat and die. Some companies do not figure maintenance into the cost of expensive electronic equipment I guess.

    yes it does. that crap on the outside is slowly working its way inside.

    the outside being cleaner will slow the mess going inside.

    from the looks of the amount of dust on the outside I would say it's already to late for the inside... It needs to be taken down opened up and cleaned out properly the hotter the internals get the shorter it's life span

    Nothing like a dirty filthy radiator. Should be better from now on since it's inside the case with a dust filter.
