Ok, so there are many posts out there repeating each other. For example, I have seen double posts regarding incase sleeves, backpacks, cleaning methods and much more. All of these posts for the sake of taking care of our beloved MacBooks. However, as many know or have come to realize, reposting our answers over and over and over again can get tiring. So, I have decided to write up this guide for the MacBook. Of coarse, initially this guide will be rough as i don't own all the accessories out there to judge and recommend. That is where you all MacRumors members come in. Those of you who do have experience, help me out in writing this Guide. I would also love help in any way possible like pictures how to do stuff, etc. The more help, the better this guide can get. As of 11/18/08 this guide is still not finished. Here is the rough break down: Post 1 - General Knowledge Post 2 - Cleaning Post 3 - Incases and BackPacks Post 4 - Software Care & Apple Care General Knowledge Ok so to get started with the guide, I find it essential to define some terms before continuing. Here are some of the terms you might encounter: FSB - Front Side Bus, this is the device in your MacBook (rather a part of your motherboard) that transfers data from the CPU to the RAM to the devices in your Mac. The faster the clocking of this, the faster your system will be. CPU - Central Processing Unit, handles every calculation in the computer. GPU - Graphics Processing Unit, is the chip that acts like a CPU, but this chip is dedicated to graphics (3D rendering, video, pictures, etc) computing and processing. These processors are starting to come out in dies with multiple cores. Super Drive - Your CD or DVD drive. iSight - The integrated webcam in all new Macs RAM - This is the memory your computer uses to store temporary files. The higher the RAM, the more optimal the level of computing gets. It is recommended that you get as much memory as you can afford. Sleep Mode - This mode is achieved when you close you Mac's lid. A Mac easily goes asleep and wakes up. It is a convenient mode to leave your Mac in a low power consumption state. Backlit - A type of keyboard present in all MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and the high-end MacBook. It is convenient in poor lighting as the keys light up thanks to a LED behind them. Makes keys easier to see. HDD - Hard Disk Drive, where you store all your media, files, OS, and any other thing you download or create. TrackPad - The pad where the MacBook senses your fingers and interprets the click. Widget - Helpful program that actives small, but important tasks (user dependable). Any other terminology needed to be define, just send me a PM and I'll get to adding it. Please make sure said term is common use in the forums.
