How To Properly Take Care Of Your Mac Computer

A Mac computer in many circles is considered as a luxury. They are a tad bit expensive than many other computers out there. Many consider it as a style statement. But there is a reason why people prefer it over other laptops. Many consider it to be more user friendly and they just plain work and last longer and it looks better than most of the computers out there. But like every other electronic product out there they are prone to malfunction if they are not well taken care of. The reason they last very long is because people put proper care and effort while using them and maintaining them. Here are a few tips that would help you take care of your Mac computer better.

1. Keep your Mac computer Clean Purchase some good quality cleaning product. While buying those products make sure that they are safe and are approved to be used on electronics and computers. So kindly check the product label before buying.

Use a lint-free, soft cloth in order to clean your computer. Always make sure that you power down your mac computer before you do any kind of cleaning.Preferably use an air-duster to remove dust from hard to reach places. So use an air brush for brushing the edges, an LCD cleaning liquid or just water for the screen, and some LCD wipes to remove oil and dust off the keyboard.

2. Avoid any physical damage to the machine It is very obvious that any physical damage will affect the longevity of your mac computer or any other device in general so try to avoid physical damages in all cases. The mac computers are in general very sturdy and can take a beating but that doesn’t mean that they are indestructible. Use a hard-bound case cover to protect the exterior of your machine. A keyboard slip cover also helps in protecting the keyboard keys from any damage. Also be a little gentle while plugging and unplugging your peripheral devices into the ports to avoid any damages. Lastly, treat your keyboard keys gently and avoid mashing them very hard in anger.

3. Avoid abrupt and hard Shutdowns Unless you are experiencing extreme hangups or crash, you should in any case avoid holding down the power button or unplugging it to shut down your mac computer. This may cause severe damage to the machine’s logic boards and may even lead to corruption of data.

4. Software Updates Always perform regular software updates on your system. You may not like a few features in the new update of the software but always make sure that you do it since it may contain various bug fixes and ‘under-the-hood’ changes which may increase the life of your mac computer and help it perform better. A healthy tip is avoid installing unrecognized or malicious software into your mac computer.

5. Update hardware Like all hardware electronics, they have a predetermined life cycle. So after regular intervals say like 3-5 years make sure that you update and upgrade your hard drives and other parts as after those 3-5 years they may not perform as well as they used to.

6. Take care of your battery While charging or discharging your battery, let your machine power down to around 5% before you fully charge it. Since the battery has a theoretical limited number of charge/discharge life cycles, it helps if you let it discharge to around 5% then charge it.

7. Regular Backup A regular backup help increase the life of your mac computer. A regular backup of data helps you protect your data should you ever run into an irrecoverable problem.
