Do we all always remember to laptops that we use daily? Especially, in times like this, when the entirety of our lives and education methods have basically shifted to the laptop.

1. Keep Drinks Away From Your Laptop
Many things are fixable when a laptop is damaged in some way, but liquid damage is irreversible. Overtime parts inside your laptop corrode and will not be able to be repaired, they would need replacing. Liquids can also turn your laptop into a fire hazard just by one little slip.

2. Keep Your Laptop in a Clean Environment
You can clean the outside of a laptop easily, but if dust and particles get inside it can have the effect of slowing down your laptop over time.

3. Don't Touch Your Laptop with Wet or Dirty Hands
Working on your laptop with unclean hands can cause electrical failure and cause damage to the internals of your laptop.

4. Don't Lift Your Laptop by The Screen
Always pick up your laptop by the base. Picking by the screen could cause damage to the screen or screen hinges and more likely to slip out of your hands.

5. Be Careful About How You Plug Things In
There are different types of ports on laptops and some of them look very similar. Pay attention to the shape and size of your plug in devices before connecting. Of special note is the power supply, do not force the power lead in as this is a common mistake causing laptops to become unusable until repaired.

6. Don't place Anything On Top of Your Laptop
Even light items can cause damage if the keyboard is being pushed onto the screen without you realising. Heavier items plonked on top of the lid can mean very expensive repairs to your laptop.
