Finally picked up a Macbook for the first time (MBA early 2014 used) and I have some questions
Hello guys, I have owned an iPhone, iPad and iPods before but this is my first apple computer.
I had a very tight budget and the base MBA 2014 early was the one that fit it. I checked the piece that I was getting and it has held up pretty well, it has 443 charge cycles (a lot, I am aware) but this was the best possible deal available to me. I just needed one to read on, type on and study on, I have a heavy duty laptop for the rest of my needs.
1. It is running High Sierra, should I update it to Mojave? Will my battery life and performance take a hit? I am really confused here.
2. Does a case/shell help the macbook or does it just make it heavier? I want it to be as light as possible but as protected as possible at the same time too.
3. How do I maximize the battery performance and cycles? Should I keep it plugged in when at the desk or let it die out or somewhere in the middle?
Thank you 🙂 I’ve never purchased a used machine before.
