What Are The Most Common Causes Of Damage To Laptop Screens?

Thanks to the skill and expertise of laptop designers, the average laptop looks a lot sturdier than it actually is. This is especially true of the larger and weightier laptops, which may appear solid and able to withstand a few knocks – this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The truth is that laptops are incredibly delicate, and there isn’t much protection between their complex, fine inner parts and the outside world. This can mean trouble if you need to move around with your laptop a lot, a naturally clumsy person, or someone who doesn’t consider the delicacy of their equipment – or you may even be just a little unlucky.

For this reason, it is advised that when travelling, you never put your laptop into the main hold of a plane. No one cares less about your luggage than baggage handlers, as people who travel a lot will be able to testify; therefore, while travelling, the safest place for your laptop is your hand luggage.

The most delicate part of the laptop is also, ironically, the most expensive part to replace: the laptop screen. Often the laptop screen equates to roughly half of the cost of the laptop, which means that sourcing laptop parts for a damaged screen – or trying to find a laptop screen replacement – might not be worth your time.

Your best bet is not to need a laptop screen replacement in the first place. To avoid having to buy laptop parts, treat your laptop with care. Don’t touch the screen unless cleaning gently with a lint-free cloth, and avoid eating or drinking near it.
