Advice from an Apple tech: When your Mac gets too toasty

Chris Barylick | May 3, 2013
Ever hear a Mac's desktop fans go into overdrive under normal operating conditions? Or felt a Mac laptop go from a normal temperature to a more-than-toasty lap roaster in under a minute? Those are times when a Mac was running hotter than it should have been.

Best practices

Take care of your Mac, and it'll take care of you. Give the fans room to work, and make sure you've got the latest firmware for your Mac. If your fan sounds like it's working harder than it should, don't be afraid to turn the computer off, open it up, and blow out the dust bunnies. Beyond that, if something physical needs to be repaired or replaced, find the appropriate guide online and take your time with the repair.
