So you have purchased a shiny, new Apple laptop – congratulations! Have you given a thought to how you will take care of it and keep it looking like new or protect all your files? A wide range of Speck shells are available which are the perfect way to protect against small knocks and scratches. Let a protective case do its job and look after your laptop. They come in a wide range of colours and will help add a personal touch to your laptop – which is great if there is more than one in the house!
And don’t forget a keyboard cover! This flexible friend will protect your laptop against cat hair, toast crumbs and minor spills. It will help keep the inside of the computer clean which will help prevent overheating so will extend the life of the computer. They come in clear, some in colours, and some that will help you get more from your Mac by teaching you some of the keyboard shortcuts!
Mac Outpost Sentinel is our monitoring service that can help us identify issues with your computer before they can cause serious problems and often before you are aware of them. It can let us know if your hard drive is failing, or getting full, if there is malware on the system – and all without accessing any of your personal data. It can even let us know if you are not doing a regular backup!
Which brings us to an absolute must: an external hard drive so that you can back up all your important files. Cloud storage is great for small files but will not likely be a good solution for large photo or music libraries. You need to guard your data against drive failure, laptop theft, or damage. Come in and see us if you need more backup advice – we have all kinds of solutions to help safeguard your system!
