When you buy an Apple product, you are secure in the knowledge that, when treated and cared for correctly, the machine will last you a lengthy period of time. But the last thing you want is to see your expensive Macbook Pro break down because it was not maintained carefully enough.

There are steps you can take, however, that will help you keep even an older laptop in great shape for as long as you own it. Instead of running out and buying a new one at the first sign of trouble, it is far more cost-effective to simply try and deal with the problem first:

  • Keep it cool: One of the best things you can do for the health of your computer is make sure that it does not overheat while in use. You can do this by keeping it out of hot rooms and also investing in a cooling pad. 
  • Run a virus scan: While there is no better computer than the Macbook to fight off viruses, it never hurts to double check now and again. Run a virus scan program to ensure that there are no immediate threats to your computer.
  • Transfer your data to backups storage: Having too many large files, such as videos, stored on your hard drive will make your computer slow and sluggish. To prevent this, simply transfer those bigger items to the Cloud or an external hard drive to free up storage space and quit weighing down your laptop.
