If you spent big money on an essential piece of equipment that’s also quite delicate, you would want to take great care of it so that the investment doesn’t quickly go to waste. However, when it comes to laptops, people can be shockingly negligent when using them, especially around liquids such as coffee and soda which could easily be spilled and would cause considerable damage to the electronics.
Bracken Foam Fabricators in Ireland produced this infographic about caring for your laptop, outlining the most common ways in which they can be damaged and what steps to take if you’re unfortunate or careless enough to drop it or spill liquid on it. These are the most frequent causes of laptop damage, but your computer could also be damaged by tugging at cords and plugs too forcefully, trying to jam a cable into the wrong port or even by letting your pets jump on it. After all, how is your dog or cat supposed to know that you spent hundreds on the machine?
Getting your laptop insured is an option that could be well worth taking. Policies will differ between each manufacturer, but if you think that the cover being offered by your manufacturer is justifiable, then you’re well advised to go with it. It is an extra cost, but think about the alternative of failing to get it insured and then seeing it crash to the floor a week after buying it.
