According to a report (Warning: pdf) done in 2007, almost every college student owns a computer, and 73.7% own a laptop. If we were to transpose that result to Cornell, we’d get roughly 10,000 students with laptops, assuming the numbers (Warning: pdf) are accurate.
So with this many students potentially carrying laptops around, someone’s bound to know how to clean a laptop, right?
Well, yes and no. There are some very basic guidelines that need to be followed when considering physically cleaning your laptops. I’m not saying these are the exact kind of things you should do, but they’ve proven pretty effective for me.
