    Specs:
    27" iMac Core 2 Duo, 4GB 1067 MHz RAM, iPhone 4S
    Clean Mac
    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!

    Specs:
    PowerPC G4 533Mhz, 2010 MBP 13" Intel core 2 Duo, 4GB DDR3, 350M GPU, 250GB HDD.
    try Onyx, works a treat.

    its like CCleaner for OS X.

    and for the outside, just get some microfibres.

    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.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    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.

    Regards.
