Ultrabook maintenance tips to keep your laptop running smoothly

Like every investment, your Ultrabook will need a little tender loving care from time to time in order to make sure that the super-fast features will continue running smoothly for as long as you keep your computer. General care and upkeep keep any electronics investment in good working order, whether it is a laptop, LED TV or even just your MP3 player. Here are a few ideas to help you keep on top of your Ultrabook repairs and maintenance.

Caring for your Ultrabook is similar to caring for any computer. First, make sure that you keep your Ultrabook in a clean location free of any items that might damage your device. For example, you will want to make sure that your tabletop is free of liquids, crumbs and other food items. Likewise, you should keep eating and drinking to a minimum around your Ultrabook . This way, if a wayward elbow bumps your drink, you won?t have to dive to keep it from frying your laptop. Also remember to wash your hands before using your Ultrabook. Clean fingers free of grease and Cheetos dust will keep the keyboard and mouse in good working order. You can also use special cleaning cloths and solution to wipe down the surfaces of your computer.

Protection from the elements

One of the wonderful features of the Ultrabook is its portability, which means that you will be taking your laptop out into the elements from time to time.  Whether you have to brave a winter snowstorm or a throng of people in the elevator, a good case will make all the difference. Opt for a hard shell case if you think your Ultrabook might suffer a few hard knocks. Padded neoprene or fabric cases also offer a gentle way to protect your Ultrabook. And if you have a lot to carry, then a stylish tote or practical briefcase should do the trick. If your Ultrabook is also enabled with touchscreen technology, then you may also want to consider a clear screen protector to minimize damage from finger oils. These protectors are easy to apply and replace when necessary.

Software program safety

By now, you probably know you need to have virus protection and adware installed on your computer. However, you will also need to get a regular tune up for your computer from time to time in order to de-fragment your hard drive, clear cookies and cache, as well as tidy up other areas of your computer. These tune-ups double check the work your adware and virus software is doing, as well as free up space for storage and speed. Of course, you should go ahead and back up your files on an external hard drive from time to time just in case. If you have old files you don?t think you will use any more, it helps to delete them or move them to another storage location so your Ultrabook can focus on the tasks you need it to do right now.
