3 pieces of software for mac users.
Every time I know of somebody buying a Mac, I recommend 3 things:
Onyx: Free Maintenance tool. Run it every month.
iDefrag: Run this at least 3 times a year. You’ll see how much faster your Mac runs.
SMART reporter: FREE. Run it all the time. It will tell you if your HD is about to die.
For laptop users, Smc Fan Control. FREE. Controls your fans, so it runs cooler.
Why so few people know about these?
Computer users have become more and more comfortable with their new machines and do not maintain them (well, a lot of people do that with all kinds of gear, relationships, friendships, food…)
Spread the word, get these 3, and your Mac will live a long life.
