General Tips on Laptop Care

  • Always keep the Brenthaven hard case on the laptop at all times.
  • Exposure to direct sunlight or prolonged extreme temperatures can cause severe damage to the laptop.  Avoid leaving the laptop in a car during the summer.
  • When not in use, store the laptop in a cool and dry location.
  • Keep food, liquids, or other substances that could result in damage away from the laptop.
  • Avoid using laptop near any water source (e.g. pool, beach, etc.)
  • Do not leave laptop unattended at public venues.
  • Avoid leaving the laptop plugged in and charging all the time.  This may reduce the battery life.

  • Never attempt to repair or reconfigure the laptop.
  • Take care when inserting cords, cables and other removable storage devices to avoid damage to the laptop ports.
  • Clean the screen, touch pad, and laptop with a lightly dampened soft or microfiber cloth. Chemicals, cleaners, or a wet cloth are NOT approved cleaning devices. The laptop should be turned off and unplugged during cleaning.
