Increase protection for your Macbook even further by simply buying a carry case to ensure safe transit and a keyboard cover and screen protector to keep the rest of the device clean. Wipe the entirety of the Macbook, particularly the keyboard and screen, with a slightly damp microfiber cloth regularly to prevent it from gathering dust. Finally, dust and dirt can be removed from the hinge between the screen and the base of the Macbook with a small, clean paintbrush or makeup brush.
