Just got my new 27" iMac(my first mac) and I am loving it and I was wondering how you guys keep them clean and running like new? Any regular maintenance or stuff like that? I am talking about the inside of the computer, not keeping the outside looking clean.
Thanks!

Personally I don't recommend installing those apps. From my experience they only slow down your mac. Though I reset safari from time to time because it takes up a lot of space if you look in your library.

I was worried about how to keep your mac clean too. But really there is not much you can do.

How could MainMenu or OnyX slow down your machine? Neither application is running unless you tell it to run. If you noticed a slow down, it must have been something else that caused it.
