I was evicting dust bastards from my mid-2010 MacBook Pro tonight when I came across this
little piece of exploded circuitry. wtf.

Here's another angle
. Based on a little plastic fragment I also found, and how long I've been hearing it rattle around in there, I'd say this happened months ago.
Everything runs fine, as far as I can tell, and has been for ages (I'm using that computer to type this up).
Computer's no stranger to high loads and heat, which is part of the reason I was in there just now.
Any idea what's going on here? I'm not exactly worried, but I use this computer for work and would like to stay ahead of the curve.
