Transporting and walking around with the laptop

Transporting and walking around with the laptop

Always close your laptop when carrying and walking with it.

You shouldn't ever drop your computer, but accidents do happen. Dropping a computer while it is open has a much higher chance of catastrophic damage than dropping it when it is closed.

Avoid extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold) when transporting your laptop and do not squeeze it in between heavy objects such as books.
