    This is so common sense that it's hard to consider innovative, but it's about damn time. This definitely needs to be incorporated into laptops.

    it's cool, but the problem is where would the dust go?

    Into the system where the other fans would hopefully push it out.

    The thing is that most laptops don't have cards or even dedicated fans, they have chips on the motherboards and a heatsink that is often shared with the CPU.

    I can see this failing easily.

    Well, the thing is, if it does that every time the system starts or every time the fans spin up, then hopefully there's not a lot of dust in there. Excellent idea.

    It would pull all the dust up into the motor housing for the fan. Unless they've sealed it then it could lead to the bearing failing or the whole thing just gumming up.

    Highly highly highly unlikely. I've seen fans that had dust bunnies bigger than the Easter Bunny that kept on going. And if it did it on a regular basis, it would never get that bad. Just like cleaning your house. Do a little on a daily basis, it doesn't look so bad, wait a couple weeks, well, you reap what you sew.

    Wow, I want the fans in my M15x to do that. I wonder how effective it would be, if it were even possible.
