This. Like I most of us, I am the "IT Repair Department" for friends and
family.  You have no idea how many computers I have "fixed" simply by
blowing the dust out of the cooling path and off the motherboards.
Mac laptops, especially, seem to be built to very tight cooling tolerances.

Recommend taking the unit apart and then going outside to blow the dust
out of the guts of thing.  Never use a vacuum cleaner to do this because -
unless specifically designed for electronics - vacuum cleaners will generate
a lot of static electricity which is deadly to solid state parts.
