A new Macbook is undoubtedly an exciting new investment. Regardless of model, storage capacity or color, your sleek, shiny, new machine needs care and attention in order to work at its optimum. It may sound daunting, especially for those who have never owned a Macbook before, but by paying attention to just a few key care areas, you and your new technology will get along swimmingly. Read on to find out the top tips for looking after your new Macbook!
Cases and Cleaning
Let’s start with the basics: put a hard case on your new Macbook. A Macbook ‘shell’ is a small but incredibly worthwhile investment that will help you to avoid general wear and tear, but could also potentially save your Macbook from more severe damage, for example if you were to drop it or spill something on or near it. 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.
