Usually the laptops have a backup partition on its HDD and some tool that can restore the computer to the factory state. So, you can always rollback.

How to get electronics (PCs/phones/tablets) for FREE: Find it for 1/2 price (example: refurbished). Buy 2 online, sell 1 locally, get 1 FREE. Recently bought an Android phone for $12 ($7+$5 SH) on E-Bay then sold it locally for $85, 7+ times what I paid for it. $73 profit.

(Of course, there's a chance of receiving a defected product. To minimize this, only buy from trusted sellers who accept returns).

Ok. I bought my new laptop.

I have a question:

Does installing Linux on a laptop that comes with Windows make me lose the warranty?

so, what is the specification of your new lappy, i guess all of us who participated in this thread are so curious to know Laughing


any warranty claim (hang, audio scream, video jumping, no network, wifi strength low, hard disk, board, dead pixels, screen and etc) must be in default operating system.

the "problem/defect" must be prove using provided default OS, unless defect is visible without OS, eg, cannot on.

that is afaik, since i am doing selling laptop business here in my country.

Hi!
My new laptop is here! Smile

I have a question: Should I use the notebook with batteries plugged or unplugged when the notebook is connected on a normal power source?

Thanks

Ozzy: I would suggest that you leave the batteries installed and let the internal charger take care of the battery management.

Should I remove the battery after I stop using the notebook (to put it into the backpack)?

Which one is the right thing to do? Remove and store it or leave it in the notebook and store it in the backpack?

Older batteries were sensitive to remembering where the charge was, so usually you'd want to fully discharge them before recharge. Also, it has been suggested not to 100% all the time plug in the laptop and use it with battery installed. And if you don't use the laptop for a month (or similar long time), then you should definitely remove the battery (to prevent leaks?).

If you're really curious, read the docs and see what type (NiCad or whatever) and look it up online. I don't think you should need (or want) to remove the battery very much, if at all. Newer batteries are "usually" much better about this than older ones, so there's really no reason to worry yourself.

Anyways, it doesn't majorly matter, batteries don't last more than two or three years anyways (though I wouldn't recommend buying a replacement this far in advance either).

Just my 2c (corrections welcome) ....

and nowadays, batteries are cheap. 70$ is not that much i believe for a 1000$+ laptop
