Do the iMacs get dusty?

If so, Should I put an air filter next to it?

Most computers ( especially desktops ) are at the mercy of their environment. The cleaner that environment....the cleaner the computer and it's associated parts.

A simple solution would be to just dust it, whenever it gets dusty.

Mostly because they're not very effective.

If it's "really dusty" - then you should take care of that before setting up your new machine. The iMac can and will inhale dust and that's something you should try to minimize. Dust is unavoidable but if it's "really dusty" and I've seen places that are - then you should mitigate that first.
