  1. Make a back up of your important files. Save them in an external USB or you can burn your files onto a CD/ DVD.
  2. Check your notebook’s warranty to see what the manufacturer covers when you’re notebook is damaged.
  3. Always keep your notebook with you at all times.  Do not put your laptop along with your other baggage as it always goes with you during your flight as a carry-on baggage.
  4. Use a well-suited protective notebook case.  Opt for the heavily padded to protect your device from bumps since you’re going to be moving a lot.

  8. Take the peripherals with you including the power cables, external drives, and other cables.  Bring an extra battery so you can use your laptop PC at times where you can’t plug in using power cables.
