Taking the computer home

When you move between your office and home you will need to prepare your computer for the short trip.

Preparing the computer

After disconnecting your computer from the desktop, prepare the unit as follows:

1Remove all media from the drives. Loaded media can damage the drive heads during transit.

2Pack the computer in a protective case that is padded to guard against knocks. Make sure that the unit cannot slide around inside the case.

Caution: Avoid packing items next to the top of the computer, as this could result in damage to the screen.

What to bring with you

If you don't have spare items at home, it is advisable to take along the AC adapter and this User's Guide.

Special considerations

To protect your computer in transit, it is advisable to pay attention to the following:

Minimize the effect of temperature changes. Keep your computer with you instead of placing it in storage holds.

Avoid leaving your computer in a hot car.

Changes in temperature and humidity can cause condensation to form within your computer. Before turning the computer on, allow it to return to room temperature, and then check the screen for signs of condensation. If the temperature change is greater than 10°C (18°F), allow the computer to come to room temperature slowly by placing it in a room with a temperature between the outside and room temperatures.
