    I asked for suggestions for buying a new laptop here on BHW few weeks ago. Today I have bought a new "Acer Aspire E1-571" whose cost was around $400 approximately. I can't post the screenshot because my phone is not working at the moment.

    This is how the laptop looks like:

    I will post the actual screenshot very soon.

    Thank you BHW

    Congratulations! Always nice to spend some of the profits. Make sure to reinvest in your business also.

    Now keep the drinks away from it, don't transport it while it's running, never let the charger hang from the jack, keep the screen and keyboard clean, close the lid when not in use (keeps the keyboard clean and cats off of it), never let the battery go under 10%, don't carry it around in sleep mode - shut it down, always carry it in a well padded laptop bag and lastly, make sure you keep the heat sink and fan area cleaned at least once a year.

    Just some pointers from a computer store guy.

    I find your advice to be interesting :)

    If you do not mind I have a question or two about your advice.

    1. Why do you not carry a laptop around in sleep mode?
    2. Why never let the battery go below %10?

    I have had my laptop for 2 years and it is doing fine. Dropped it a few times and actually bent the speaker on it.
    But it works like it did when it was new so I am attached to it really.

    Cheers,
    Unclemike

    Answers:

    1. Laptop hard drives spin when running, the heads fly very close to the platters while running. Carrying the laptop or transporting the laptop while the platters are spinning and the heads are not parked allows any significant shock to crash the heads into the platters which causes sector errors. When a computer is shut down the heads park to a safe portion of the platters where data is not stored. For those old enough to remember record players, it's akin to bumping the record player while playing a record (a skip and scratch occurs). When a hard drive head crashes into a platter the damage is permanent and can't be reversed. While sleep mode parks the heads, too often we've seen users close the lid and toss them in a bag or transport them without allowing significant time for the platters to stop spinning and the heads to park. It's not instantaneous.

    2. Many batteries once they get older will not recover from a complete drain. Ni-CD batteries where notorious for this but even aged Li-Ion batteries don't like to be drained completely and recharged repeatedly. Draining a battery lower than 10% constantly will just wear it out faster. What you gain in return is probably not worth purchasing a new battery every year. If you rarely drain a battery it lasts much longer for when you really "need" it. Using a charger all the time you can will make your battery last much longer. Batteries have a depreciating value with every drain and recharge cycle.
