Common Macbook Issues
Macbooks share very common issues with other laptops an computers. These include speed issues, viruses, system failures and failing components. These issues can generally be identified and fixed after running some diagnostics. A MacBook’s common issues include flickering screens, suddenly turning off, charging issues, broken keys, external hard drives not appearing and battery life.
MacBook’s are susceptible to viruses however this isn’t as common other devices. This lower chance of getting viruses is attributed to most viruses not being designed for their operating system.
If a MacBook screen starts to flicker, it will generally need to be replaced. Repair may still be possible if the cable that connects the screen to the motherboard has become slightly dislodged. When the keys on a MacBook no longer work or the caps come off, the keyboard will need replacing. Their design makes replacement a difficult process and Apple has made it a longer process by adding in a lot of screws. With newer model MacBook’s it can take between 3-5 hours to replace the keyboard. The screws have been made harder to reach and added more components to keep them in place. The only alternative to this is to replace the whole top case which is expensive.
