Your Macbook is an expensive item and must be serviced to ensure trouble free use.
Macbooks unlike most laptops, only have ventilation at the REAR of the unit, at the LCD hinge.
If the internal air vents become blocked or you have a fan failure, then this can cause the Macbook to run extremely HOT and ultimately cause damage to the motherboard, which means an expensive repair.
We have seen an increase in failures at our premises due to poor service issues.
A common failure especially with Macbook Pro's is Graphical problems, this is caused when the motherboard runs far to hot and cracks the solder underneath the Graphics Processor.

In the below example of a Macbook Pro that came into one of our workshops, you can see how clogged with dirt and fluff the ventillation is at the top of the image.
We also find swollen batteries whilst carrying out services on Macbooks.
These the customer normally state that their Macbook doesn't hold its charge anymore or the trackpad is cracked. The reason for the cracking of the Track Pad is due to the battery swelling to some times three times it original size.
This also means the battery is at risk if catching fire or exploding. The battey is checked during the service to ensure its healthy and if a problem is found the customer is contacted as there would be an additonal charge for the battery replacement.

Due to the increase in faults that could have been avoided, we felt the need to raise this Blog to bring it to the attention of Macbook, Imac owners and even general Laptop and PC's, how important having your equipment serviced truly is.
