I use a can of air to blow out dust and gunk from the keyboard every 2-3 months or so. I still have an old IntelliMouse Explorer v1.0, and I can't tell if it's dirty or the finish is just worn down from many years of use. Probably a bit of both.
I occasionally blow dust out of my lappy's fans and exhaust vents, although I really should do that part more often.
