Seems easy enough …
Keep Food, Drinks, and Liquids Away
It’s common sense that electricity and water aren’t a good combination. Unfortunately, liquids or breadcrumbs and laptop keyboards, for example, aren’t either.
One of the most important ways to ensure your laptop’s longevity is to keep it away from food and beverages. But if you’re going to have a drink while working, make sure to keep your cup far enough away from the computer that, in case of a spill.
Increase Battery Lifespan
Even the most impressive laptop battery life can deteriorate over time. It’s important to optimize the battery settings for increased longevity.
The first thing you need to know is that you should keep your laptop plugged in as long as you can. If you’re working at the desk most of the time, simply keep the power cord plugged in.
Really, overcharging your laptop’s battery is not as much of an issue as you might think.
Let Your Laptop Breathe
As a general rule, to ensure proper cooling, you should place your laptop on a hard, even surface like a table or desk. Setting your laptop on soft materials such as pillows or cloth of any kind can prevent the necessary heat dissipation.
Why Take Care of Your Laptop?
