Need a new computer for homeschooling? You can do worse than a sub-£30 2007 MacBook off eBay

Oh Matron!

Ex AASP here....

Removing the keyboard (I did at least 100 of them) is shocking simple, but I URGE YOU TO REMOVE THE FAN AND COMPRESS AIR THE DUST AWAY. Because of the design of the air inlets at the back, and the propensity of people to use them on their bed whilst watching movies, etc, they used to suck as an extraordinary amount of dust.

The fan is held in by three screws, so easy to remove. You don't even need to disconnect the fan from the logic board (but be careful: those connectors aren't the most robust)
