    Hey Guys,

    I just bought my first notebook, and like all new notebook buyers, I am still anal about keeping it perfect. I any case, I was wondering who has tips and tricks for keeping MacBooks running well.

    For instance:

    I'd get a (neoprene) sleeve for protecting it from scratches.

    Try to keep the MacBook and MagSafe as cool as possible with good ventilation. While in use, rest them on hard surfaces like a desk, book, cooling pad etc and avoid resting them on a soft surface like carpet, bedspread, lap, dirty laundry.

    Also, keep your coke cans, water bottles and coffee cups away from your MacBook.

    Enjoy -GDF
