How to handle your notebook safely

  • Pickup the Notebook with two firm hands.
  • Place the laptop in the middle of your workspace to reduce the risk of accidental knocks or falls.
  • Open the screen by holding the rigid frame to avoid flexing the screen.

  • Be sure to secure the screen with the latch when using it as a Tablet PC and when closing the screen
  • Ensure you have clean fingers when using the Touchscreen option.
