Maybe you just bought yourself a netbook or maybe you are just getting ready to take it on a perilous trip. No doubt that you have given some thought to how you will go about protecting your investment. One of the major foes of any piece of electronics is water. As any third grader can tell you, electricity and water do not mix. That means that you, as a responsible netbook owner want to take steps to keep your netbook as far away from water as is possible. Luckily for you that is exactly what this article aims to help you with. We are going to look at ways that you can waterproof your netbook. Here are some options.
A Neoprene Sleeve
A neoprene sleeve is a mostly waterproof solution. The word mostly is used because a sleeve will be waterproof except in the places where joints exist. The locations of these joints will not be waterproof. This means that you should choose your model wisely. These come from a wide variety of different manufacturers, just be careful that you get one with spaces for the locations of your ports. It is usually good to get one for your specific model.
A Quick Fix
If you need a solution and you need one right now, there is one option that you can use in a pinch. Do not laugh at this suggestion. At the first blush it will seem silly, but it actually works. Get a ziptop bag larger then your netbook and seal it up tight. While this is far from a permanent solution it will do in a pinch.
Now your netbook will be safe. Enjoy your travels.
