Protecting Your MacBook From Damage


Macbooks can be very expensive, so it is important to treat them as an investment and keep it safe. Unfortunately, some situations are unavoidable but there are some steps anyone can take to help avoid any potential damage to your Macbook.




Wrap your Macbook in a case or skin.

Since a MacBook is a portable device, it is very susceptible to being dropped. Buying a case or wrapping your MacBook in a skin is one of the easiest ways to protect it. There are many different cases that come in a variety of styles and materials, and they can range from being very expensive to very cheap. Typically you get what you pay for in terms of quality, so if you really want to protect your device you might want to invest in a good case.






Protect your screen

If you have a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or any other Mac laptop, it is extremely important to protect your screen. This is because any damage to the front screen of your MacBook will require a full screen and display replacement. This is a very costly part to purchase, depending on your model of MacBook, the screen could cost anywhere from $200-$600.


To help avoid any damage incurred to the screen, the best course of action is to install a screen protector on your MacBook. This layer of protection will protect against scratches and could help avoid a screen break in the event of a drop.




Use a keyboard cover.

Keyboards tend to wear out the most on MacBooks if they are not properly covered. The cover helps prevent crumbs and dust from entering the keyboard and getting trapped underneath the keys. This will also help prevent your keys from wearing down from typing on them.





Stay away from water.

Water is the great enemy of the MacBook! Unlike newer Smartphones, Macbooks are not waterproof and do often get damaged when exposed to water. Avoid using your Macbook in the rain and be very careful if you have a drink sitting next to it as spilling water on the keyboard can cause a short circuit.


When cleaning your MacBook make sure you do not use water. Instead, use rubbing alcohol as that will not corrode the components in your laptop.
