I open up a lot of computers and the nastiest dustiest ones come from the cleanest homes. Excessive vacuuming gets dust in the air. If the computer is running while this dust is suspended in the air it sucks it right in. Get some canned air and take the upper case off and take it outside and really blow it out. Remove the battery before doing so in case the liquified air hits the logic board. The optical drive is probably packed with dirt too. Or, you find a mate that doesn't clean house as much.
