    well nothing in particular really, i just want to keep my mac clean, to have it run as smooth as can be.

    hard drives fragmented, make sure unnecessarily files are not left behind on the computer, caches...etc

    and thnx for the link! i know what i won't be spending my money on after reading the comments:D

    There is no need to do anything unless you have an issue. Generally, files are created for a reason so removing some files can cause issues.

    Caches are cleared automatically but if you really want to do something, use OnyX

    Id recommend the maintenance version over onyx for your purposes. You just want to clean up the MAC with maintenance scripts / Cache files etc... Onyx lets you unlock more features etc as well as maintenance.
