    cleaning macbook
    hi all, so i just bought my first (used) macbook and i want to keep it for at least a year, ok, i know computers can die blaa blaa.

    my question for the forum i open it up and give it cleaning (air) i found dust in the screen, where the battery, memory and hhd sits; am thinking the prev owner had the lappy around construction or a renovation, looks like dry wall, i could be wrong.

    so should i open it up and give a cleaning or have someone else do it. opening up the lappy is not a problem for me, i already changed the hhd and ram (too easy). so any info would be great..

    thanks

    If you open it up it voids the warranty if it is still under it.

    If you want to do it then go right ahead.

    Yeah unless it has apple care on it.

    If you feel comfortable with taking it apart and fell that you really need to clean it inside then go ahead!

    i do this with all my components, take them apart and spray some compressed air (from an actual compressor) not the air cans and clean them out every six months or so.
