I knew a girl from Portland once who had a Macbook that wouldn’t burn CDs. Every time that she’d try to make a CD to listen to in her car, the process would almost complete, and then fail, wasting the CD in the process. She wanted me to take a look and figure out what was wrong with it. I took the computer and looked around at the operating system and asked her a few questions. I was trying to figure out if she could tell me anything about the computer that would help me diagnose the problem.
I was stumped. All the settings were configured correctly, but the CD would just not burn. But as I handed it back to her, I noticed a long, skinny dent on the cover of the computer. I asked her what it was. She admitted, blushing, that she had dropped it a while back. By some strange coincidence, it was at the time that the CD drive stopped working.
Now the point to all this is not that MacBooks are always in need of repair. Most of the time they aren’t. And the Mac operating system is almost always rock-solid. But no laptop is immune to the problems that can come with physical accidents. Maybe you’re commuting in Portland and you bang your laptop against a door or accidentally drop it. This can cause damage that’s not visible on the outside, but can manifest in problems down the road, like my friend’s issue with her CD drive. MacBooks, unlike other laptops, are a lot harder to repair, because of the way they’re assembled.

Macbook Protection Software
It’s great to have a Macbook. I’m sure you’re more than familiar than that. They don’t slow down; they don’t get viruses…or do they? Kind of. Over a half a million Macbooks actually get infected with some sort of malware every year. Sometimes it’s a virus, other time’s it’s malware or spyware. These attacks occur in places with higher concentrations of computers, such as Portland, where a high percentage of people own personal computers, especially Macbooks.
We love our Macbooks in Portland – they’re a part of our everyday lives. And we love the software that we can use on it. Sure, PC people might hold it over our heads that we can’t play games, but let’s be honest – Macbooks can do everything else. But with this variety of software and functionality available on the Macbook, there sometimes comes problems with those programs. That’s when you need to get your software repaired.
If you’re among the elite group that has decided to stick with Apple products because they “just work,” you know full well the frustration that comes every time that they release a new product. First world problems to be sure, but those products aren’t just going to buy themselves! On one hand (the more responsible one), new Apple products cost a lot of money, but on the other hand, you were commuting through Portland one day and accidentally broke a piece of hardware that you can’t repair yourself and you should really get a new Macbook. On the third hand, there are no more hands.
Why would you need tune-up on your Macbook? We know, it seems absurd to have this page here. Well, it seems absurd to exist, but that’s another point entirely. However, the point remains that somewhere, someone wants tune-up on their Macbook. So what’s that all about? Don’t Macs “just work?” Surely Macs are much simpler – just go to your Portland computer store, buy one, and start using it?
