Transportation Precautions

To prepare the Eee PC for transport, you should close the display panel to protect the keyboard and display panel.

The Eee PC’s surface is easily dulled if not properly cared for. Be careful not to rub or scrape surfaces when transporting your Eee PC. You can put your Eee PC in a carrying case for protection from dirt, water, shock, and scratches.

Charging Your Batteries

If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your battery pack and any optional battery packs before going on long trips. Remember that the power adapter charges the battery pack as long as it is plugged into the computer and an AC power source. Be aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery pack when the Eee PC is in use.

Airplane Precautions

Contact your airline if you want to use the Eee PC on the airplane. Most airlines have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most airlines allow electronic use only between and not during takeoffs and landings.

There are three main types of airport security devices: X-raymachines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic detectors (used on people walking through security checks), and magnetic wands(hand-helddevices used on people or individual items).You can send your Eee PC and diskettes through airportX-raymachines. However, it is recommended that you do not send your Eee PC or diskettes through airport magnetic detectors or expose them to magnetic wands.
