Top 10 Ways To Kill Your Laptop

from the fun-facts dept

Joe Schmoe writes ""This list of 10 top laptop deaths is compiled by Complete Computer Cover, which modestly describes itself as the UK's leading laptop insurer. The company analysed its claims data over the last five year, after staff ran up an unofficial league table of the weirdest or most interesting causes of laptop destruction..." Reason 5 sounds suspect to me... 'Yes, really, that's uh, milkshake, I swear.'"

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    what a coincidence!!

    My gf killed HER laptop last night!! I was tempted to sent her this url, but considering she was pretty much in tears, I think I'll hold off.

    Luckily, we found a shop that thinks it can fix it for a fee (which I'm guessing is expensive, but less pricy than a new laptop).

    AFTER it's fixed, I'll show her...

    (#11 - taking out too many screws while trying to open it up to put in memory).
