With laptops becoming even more portable, I thought it was probably a good time to remind people about some useful tips while using them. Here at The Laptop Specialist, we have seen lots of varied and unusual user damage to laptops. There are always the common ones when laptops get dropped from worktops/beds/laps etc and these often result in broken ports or cracked screens. On a few occasions though we have seen ones that have landed in sinks or even baths.
The kitchen does seem to be a place where laptops are often used and although multi tasking can be a great thing, perhaps in the case of cooking dinner while finishing off work on a laptop isn’t the best idea. As one of users soon found out when she left her laptop on her hob, which had sensor control and she came back to a smoke filled kitchen and a melted mess on the hob!
Of course the house isn’t the only place we need to be sensible with our laptops. The amount of times we’ve seen machines come in that were being used outside and got caught in the rain. As well as machines that have been stepped on after being left in the garden while the user quickly popped inside.
Over all portability is great but where ever you use your laptop make sure you are sensible and don’t leave it in a place that it is likely to get damaged.
