How to make your laptop last longer with AI
One of the benefits of AI is that it can help to improve the efficiency of your laptop. For example, if you frequently use certain programs or visit certain websites, AI can learn your habits and pre-load these programs or websites so that they’re ready for you when you need them. This can help to save time and improve your productivity. Additionally, AI can also help to optimize your battery life by learning your usage patterns and making adjustments accordingly.
Another benefit of AI is that it can help to protect your laptop from malware and other security threats. This is because AI is constantly learning and evolving, which means that it can quickly identify new security threats as they arise and take steps to protect your laptop from them. Additionally, AI can also help to keep your personal data safe by encrypting it and storing it in a secure location.
The Drawbacks of AI for Laptops
While there are several benefits to using AI on your laptop, there are also some drawbacks that you should be aware of. One of the main drawbacks is that AI requires a lot of processing power, which can drain your battery life quickly. Additionally, if you’re not careful, you may accidentally give away too much personal information to an AI program without realizing it. Finally, there is always the possibility that an AI program could malfunction or become corrupted, which could lead to serious problems for your laptop.

Laptop Longevity Poll: What was the most common repairs you needed on your laptop?
Let’s collect some more data about the longevity and repairability of laptops.
What tips do you have for prolonging the life of a laptop? Any tips and tricks for common repairs?
It will always be the battery. If you’re buying a laptop, make sure it has a replaceable battery OR an easily accessible one that you can remove yourself.
I have so many laptops with zero issues, including batteries. Never leave a laptop plugged in.
Of all the ones I see here are the common issues:
- Power connectors: charging ports get pushed and pulled by people tripping over the cord or smashing the connector into their knees, the wall, or the floor.
- Hinges for the screen. Grabbing the screen by the corner, over extending, or rough treatment break screens or the small connectors internally that go to them
- Keyboards. The keys can wear and fade, or junk gets inside them and makes the keys inoperable.

What tips do you have for prolonging the life of a laptop? Any tips and tricks for common repairs?
When our laptops start to slow down or show signs of wear, it can be frustrating. The good news is that there are things you can do to prolong the life of your laptop and make it last longer. Below are some tips on how to make your laptop last longer.
- Keep your laptop clean
One of the best ways to prolong the life of your laptop is to keep it clean. Just like any other piece of technology, laptops can accumulate dust and dirt over time. This can cause the fans to work harder and eventually overheat the system. To prevent this from happening, make sure to clean your laptop regularly. You can use a damp cloth or compressed air to remove dust from the keyboard and vents.
- Use a cooling pad
Another way to help keep your laptop cool is to use a cooling pad. Cooling pads help dissipate heat away from the laptop, which can prolong its lifespan. Many cooling pads also come with built-in fans, which can further help keep your laptop cool.
- Avoid overheating
Overheating is one of the leading causes of laptops shutting down prematurely. To avoid overheating, make sure that you’re not blocking any of the vents on your laptop and that you’re not using it on a soft surface like a bed or couch where it can’t breathe. Additionally, if you’re going to be using your laptop for an extended period of time, consider investing in a stand that will elevate it slightly so that air can circulate more easily.
- Update your software regularly
One thing that many people don’t realize is that keeping your software up-to-date can actually help prolong the life of your laptop. That’s because updates often include patches for security vulnerabilities and other bugs that could potentially cause problems down the line. So, if you want to keep your laptop running smoothly, make sure you’re staying up-to-date on all the latest software updates.
- Don’t overload your laptop
Another common mistake people make is loading their laptops down with too many programs and files. This can actually put strain on the system and cause it to run slower or even crash. So, if you want to keep your laptop running at its best, only install the programs and files you need and regularly delete anything you don’t use anymore.
While there’s no guaranteed way to make your laptop last forever, following these tips can help prolong its lifespan so you can get the most out of it. Taking care of your laptop is important not only for financial reasons but also for productivity reasons. After all, a well-running laptop can mean the difference between getting work done and falling behind. So if you want to keep your laptop running smoothly for as long as possible, make sure you’re following these tips!
Below are the best laptops in 2022-2023:
How artificial intelligence is changing the laptop landscape
In recent years, we’ve seen a surge in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications. From smart speakers to self-driving cars, it seems like there’s no limit to what AI can do. But what about laptops? How is AI changing the way we use these essential devices? Let’s take a look.
One of the most significant ways AI is changing laptops is in terms of performance. With traditional laptops, the processor is the biggest determining factor in how well the device will perform. However, with AI-powered laptops, that’s no longer the case. Thanks to their ability to handle complex tasks quickly and efficiently, AI-powered laptops are able to outperform their traditional counterparts when it comes to things like video editing and rendering, 3D modeling, and even gaming.
Another area where AI is having a major impact on laptops is battery life. One of the biggest complaints about laptops has always been that they need to be plugged in constantly in order to function properly. However, with AI-powered laptops, that’s no longer an issue. Thanks to their efficient use of power, AI-powered laptops can last for hours on end without needing to be plugged in. This means you can finally say goodbye to those pesky low battery warnings!
Finally, AI is also changing the way we interact with our laptops. Thanks to voice recognition software and other advancements, it’s now possible to control your laptop entirely hands-free. This means you can finally get some work done while you’re on the go without having to worry about lugging around a heavy laptop or dealing with tangled wires. All you need is your voice!
As you can see, AI is having a major impact on laptops and how we use them. From improved performance to longer battery life, there’s no doubt that AI-powered laptops are the way of the future. So if you’re in the market for a new laptop, be sure to keep an eye out for one with AI capabilities! You won’t be disappointed.

- Dock is not recognized after reboot - Must always unplug and plug inby /u/Franhub12 (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 7:15 pm
Hello! I have connected the Macbook M2 Pro 2023 and the Dell docking station Dell Universal Dock D6000 with USB-C. Connected to the dock is a LAN cable, a mouse, a display via HDMI and a hard drive. When I turn the macbook off and on again or reboot, I have to reconnect the dock via usb-c every time, whether before or after logging in, because I can't use the mouse or anything like that. Is this normal or is there something I can adjust in the settings here? Thank you! If you need more info from me, feel free to let me know. submitted by /u/Franhub12 [link] [comments]

- MacBook Air m2 was super cold to the touchby /u/AttemptAmazing3789 (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 5:39 pm
last night I was falling asleep to YouTube and fell asleep with the fan on ( not directly on the MacBook) I woke up in the morning to my laptop very cold and almost feeling moist on the aluminum by the keyboard but didn't feel moist at the same time like it felt wet when it wasn't (very confusing I know). I live in Southern California and my room isn't that cold and there was definitely no water near by. did I completely just screw it up. is there water building up inside it and would there be any way to check? submitted by /u/AttemptAmazing3789 [link] [comments]
- “Shut Down” Problem Error Messageby /u/Chubasc0 (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 5:27 pm
While booting up (starting) my MacBook and after logging on (with username and password), but before being placed on the desktop, this message has been displayed for the past few days. It started appearing after the battery completely drained to zero. I don’t know how to make it go away. It is displayed despite having turned off the laptop properly…using the “Shutdown” menu option (not a crash, nor a hard off). I have selected both cancel and open to try to make it go away during the next boot up. I have deleted all cache (system & user). I have tried rebooting on just battery power and AC plug.

- What is this vein that formed recently on my laptop?by /u/blxw (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 4:26 pm
My laptop developed a lifted vein thing overnight. I keep this in a bag that gets tossed around a bit, but it’s in a protective case. Is this a normal ding/dent? Something to worry about? Is it a bulging component? It’s the new M2 MacBook Air 15in 16g ram and 1tb HD if y’all need to know that. submitted by /u/blxw [link] [comments]
- Why is Office trash on the Mac? Any workarounds?by /u/VelBarphette (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 4:13 pm
Hello I have bought a used m1 air about 3 months ago. I work in high education, and I breathe Microsoft Office like oxygen. Recently, I’ve been seeing more and more things I struggle to do on the Mac, and find my workflow much faster on my Windows desktop. For instance, the way clipboard paste works on the Mac is trash! By default it will not give me the option of pasting style; keep source formatting or keep only the text. I have to make physical gymnastics to hold control + options + L shift + press V to get the desired effect. On Windows, simply pasting gives me a floating icon to adjust pasting style. The way Mac extract text from PDF files is also lacking. I have a table with names and ID and I want to move them to a table on a word file. On Windows, I can select all the names at once, copy and paste them. Same thing with IDs. On Mac, I can’t select all names at once; the selection highlight will break down and I have to select a single name at a time. These seem like little things, but it literally means something I finish in 5 minutes on Windows will now take 30 minutes, maybe more. Is there something I’m missing ? I love the Mac, the battery life makes it a perfect device, let alone performance and passive cooling. But these little things makes me use it as a novelty device while actually doing zero work on it. PS: I just found out that I’m unable to use projectors because Epson doesn’t seem to support Mac.

- Why won't my macbook charge with a non-apple plug?by /u/OutOrNout (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 2:48 pm
I have a plug that's capable of outputting 65w. I also have the 75w apple plug. I have an M2 Macbook Air. It should be more than capable of being charged at 65w, I believe. I have cables that show me the watts. When plugged into the apple plug, it's at 68 and with the other it's 63. So why doesn't it charge with the non-apple plug? submitted by /u/OutOrNout [link] [comments]
- so... m1 or m2by /u/pzabarauskas1 (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 2:15 pm
discovering my options for new macbooks, and came across the new MBA's, can't decide if I should get the MBA M1 or M2, since the price difference is 300€. both are with 8GB RAM which I'm praying it will be enough for me. I absolutely love the design of M2 but not sure if 300€ is worth just for the design, I can live with the old design submitted by /u/pzabarauskas1 [link] [comments]

- Thunderbolt Dock - Dell WD19TB3 without Audio-Output after FW-Updateby /u/NichtGanzDichter (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 12:59 pm
Dear folks, I am using a Dell WD19TB3 Dock for all my peripherials. But since the last FW-Update (I needed to do) there is no audio output. There is an article on the Dell Support KB, outlining the limitations - strangely they were only introduced after a SW-Update. Dell Thunderbolt Docks and Apple USB-C Hosts | Dell US Either way - Dell won't be interested in fixing compability issues with a competitor's hardware, so I am looking for a replacement dock. Any suggestions for a good allround dock, that is affordable? Around 100-200 USD/EUR. Thanks! submitted by /u/NichtGanzDichter [link] [comments]
- Which MacBook should I get?by /u/yerrheardd (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 12:52 pm
This is my first MacBook. I’m deciding between the MacBook Air 15” M2 chip and increase it to 16gb unified memory or just get the MacBook Pro 14” and don’t upgrade anything. I’m using it for photography and videography editing, stock trading, and beginner CAD designing. Possibly going to use it to start and manage a business also. submitted by /u/yerrheardd [link] [comments]
- Is it possible to install Windows bootcamp on an external SSD ?by /u/Lean3521 (Apple Macbook) on October 2, 2023 at 12:46 pm
Pretty much what the title says. The reason for this being me having an 2018 15" pro with a 256GB SSD, which is not upgradeable. I know that you can pretty easily install windows on external drives on pre-T2 chip macs, but AFAIK, its a little bit more complicated on T2 macs. submitted by /u/Lean3521 [link] [comments]
