You are more likely to damage your laptop (in comparison to your PC) as obviously laptops are carried around and are portable much more regularly than a PC (if ever).
Keep the battery cool, lithium batteries naturally do wear out, however you can postpone the inevitable by keeping it cool. If you are going to be running on AC power for a while, shut down or hibernate the computer, remove the battery, and work without it.
Be extra careful about eating and drinking near or around your laptop. We have seen so many cases of spilled coffee on laptops. We admit we do also drink around our laptop, just like everyone else. But always very vigilant on the distance kept between the laptop and the liquid.
A carry case is key when keeping your laptop safe, before setting off ensure your laptop is packed properly in its case. The padded section is particularly great to keep the laptop protected from impact.
Clean the keyboard properly. When keys begin to stick, it is time for a cleaning. Shut down the PC. Keep it open as you turn it upside-down and very gently tap on the back so that crumbs fall out.
As you undoubtedly know, you are supposed keep your files backed up, your applications up-to-date, and your antivirus software current. We can’t express how important this is, please do not forget.
If you still operate Windows XP, your operating system expects you to perform more maintenance tasks than other Windows versions. We recommend defragmenting your hard drive regularly.
When you use your laptop, make sure the vents are unblocked. Never work with the laptop on pillows or cushions. If possible, put it on a raised stand that allows for plenty of airflow.
