Before we answer this question. Let’s ask a couple more. Do elite Olympic athletes need regular training? Do racing cars need regular tuning and servicing? Do airplanes need regular and meticulous inspections for safe, secure and optimal performance? Yes, yes and yes we hear you say!

So do Apple Mac’s need maintenance? Well your Mac is an elite athlete performing many amazing functions constantly. You want it to race as fast as it can without missing a beat. As well as that you want it to be secure, steady and definitely not crash. All of these things require meticulous and thorough inspections or maintenance if you will. So YES Apple Mac computers do need regular and thorough maintenance to perform at their peak so you can get everything done when you need to.

We are all so busy these days trying to get that next job done. Trying to pay that next bill. Trying to update our social networking status or tweet our friends and colleagues. We/you need everything done yesterday. That means the last thing that we all need is for our Mac computers to slow down or crash. That is just annoying and when everything is a tight as it is, annoying is the last thing you want.

So it is extremely important like any piece of extraordinary equipment to maintain your Mac in the way the way you KNOW it can perform. What’s required then in maintaining it? Well the opposite of maintain is NEGLECT. If you neglect your Mac then it will not perform in the way that it should. If you neglect your Mac you can run into many problems like data loss, speed decrease, startup problems, system crashes, spinning balls, kernel panics. These problems can cost you money, lots and lots of money!

Due to neglect your hard drive could fail and you could lose all of your data then spend thousands on recovering it. You could also spend hundreds getting consultants in to perform emergency repairs or constantly trying to solve your niggling issues. Why? Because you didn’t MAINTAIN your Mac!

Do you rely on your Apple Mac? Is it important to you? If you answered yes to either of those questions then yes it is absolutely imperative that you regularly perform Apple Mac maintenance procedures. Regular training helps an athlete perform at their peak and win. Racecars are regularly tuned, tweaked and serviced so that they can win. Airplanes are regularly inspected and maintained so that they get over the line.

So if you want to get over the line and win, you need to maintain your Mac in it’s peak performance. And because we’re so busy we often can forget to do it. So set yourself a reminder in your calendar to perform regular Mac maintenance. Or if you’re forgetful, or don’t have the time, why not ask Mac It Up to help you do it because we want you to get the most out of your Mac.
