    The number 1 thing everyone should do is turn on tap to click so that way you don't have to actually click.

    Yesterday at my local Starbucks, this guy walks in and unboxes a brand new MacBook Pro and he had a venti coffee of some kind. He sneezed and the coffee in front of him blew all over his computer from the screen to keyboard 😂😆 More like “I – sneezed.” Lol he looked like he was gonna cry, the 30 something year old guy. Lol and they were out of napkins at the counter. 🤣😂

    Don't forget to get a fan control program like MacsFanControl. My 2015's CPU can pretty easily get to 100C if I don't set a custom fan curve

    When you setup a new Windows laptop It's a very different story. First you have to uninstall all the junk Apps from the Windows OS which come pre installed. Then you have to disable all the automatic updating features for the Windows OS. Then you have to switch off so many settings like notifications, cortana etc to save the RAM. Then you;ll probably need to lower the Windows graphics settings to get some smooth performance out of it. Finally you'll have to wish for the best and expect the worst.
