Do not allow your portable computer to operate with the base resting
directly on exposed skin, for example, legs, for an extended period of
time. With extended operation, heat can potentially build up in the
base. Allowing sustained contact with the skin could cause discomfort
or, eventually, a burn.
Do not use your computer in a wet environment, for example, near a
bath tub, sink, or swimming pool or in a wet basement.
If your computer includes an integrated or optional (PC Card)
modem, disconnect the modem cable if an electrical storm is
approaching to avoid the remote risk of electric shock from lightning
via the telephone line.
To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not connect or
disconnect any cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of
this product during an electrical storm. Do not use your computer
during an electrical storm unless all cables have been disconnected and
the computer is operating on battery power.
If your computer includes a modem, the cable used with the modem
should be manufactured with a minimum wire size of 26 American
wire gauge (AWG) and an FCC-compliant RJ-11 modular plug.
PC Cards may become very warm during normal operation. Use care
when removing PC Cards after their continuous operation.
Before you clean your computer, remove power. Clean your computer
with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners, which may contain flammable substances.
(Safety Instructions, continued)
