A small soft paint brush to scrub the dust build-up and a can of Can'ed air to blow away the dust. If you are in a dry climate area (static) you may want to think about ESD protection (at least a wrist strap).

Use care not to pull any of the small chips off with the brush.

I would also recommend to remove the fan and clean the exhaust grill with a thoot brush and compressed air.

thank you. since this is a delicate process should I just try and have an apple "genius" clean it for me? or is the price not right?
