Mac Outpost Tune Up

In a world of computing these days most of us are highly dependant on our gear. When we hit the power button we expect our computer to roar to life don’t we? Anything less is frustrating. And if we use our computer for business, we risk losing money when things are not going well.

Computer downtime for most of us is painful. In fact, even excessive spinning wheels are unpleasant to say the least.

What ARE spinning wheels on a Mac?

In short it means the computer is working, but if you’re waiting excessively there is likely a reason (or sometimes multiple reasons), and that’s where a Mac Outpost Tune Up can help.

A Mac Outpost Tune Up is done in our service department by one of our Apple Certified technicians. And to be honest there’s no software out there that can replicate the tweaking and nuances that come with years of experience that every one of our technicians have.

From the perspective of a power user like myself, I compare it to a software wash and rinse. Files are aligned properly, updates are completed, and configurations are optimized to improve the efficiency of the processing power of the computer. If your Mac is underperforming, we’ll be able to identify the steps that are needed to give you the best boost for your gear.

A common question that customers wonder about, is whether they should upgrade or replace an aging Mac. A Tune Up can answer that too! There are upgrades that can breathe new life into your five or six year old laptop or iMac, and this is how we’ll guide you to whether more RAM or an SSD (solid state hard drive) would be worthwhile. Often they are! Rather than spending thousands on a new computer, you can extend the life of your existing equipment for years to come for a fraction of that cost.  Again, it all starts with a Tune Up!

Got a question? Please drop me a line by email. And if you contact me directly (and mention this blog post) we’ll set up a one on one appointment where I’ll give you 10% off any of our Tune Up services to thank you for taking the time to read this post.

Hello: I own an older MacBook with OS X version 10.5.8 with 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Memory 2GB 1067 MHz DDR3. I am finding it increasingly difficult to access websites and work on certain elements of, say, Facebook, as well as YouTube content. Can you please advise if it is practical for MacOutpost to tune-up this laptop computer to overcome my problem, without losing data and also that any installed software still functions without having to upgrade programs. Appreciate your suggestions and recommendations. I live in Goderich, so there is a distance factor to consider where timing is concerned.

Thank you. Barry.
