Tips for Avoiding Damage *Based on actual student experiences! Check before closing your Chromebook lid. If earbuds, pencils, etc. are on your keyboard when you shut the lid, they can crack your screen; Open & close from the center screen edge. (vs. opening & closing with with your thumb on the sides) This prevents hinges from breaking since they wear evenly. Beware of pets and small children. They have been known to chew or break items. Keeping items out of reach also prevents them from being stepped on. Keep liquids away. Spills can damage the Chromebook’s main board, which is the most expensive part! Be careful with power, headphone, USB ports. If items plugged in get yanked, ports can get damaged, which requires replacing the expensive main board.
