    Has anyone used Apple Hardware Test as the first port of call when anything has seemed not quite right with their Macs.

    Indeed has anyone used Apple Diagnostics (for those Macs purchased from June 2013) for the same reason.

    If so what kind of report is produced, and is it truly beneficial when corresponding with an Apple Certified Tech etc ?

    I haven't needed to use AHT for many years so I don't recall what it did. However, I'm sure that an ACT would find the results useful in eliminating some possible causes. Just be sure to supply the exact results and not simply your memory of what you thought they were!

    I'm guessing Apple probably conduct it themselves as a first port of call.
