unit by using the floppy disk drive as a carry point.
❑ Clean the unit with a soft cloth, which is either dry or lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine, as these
may damage the finish of your computer.
❑ Should you drop a solid object or any liquid onto the computer, shut down your computer and then
unplug it. You may want to have the computer checked by qualified personnel before operating it again.
❑ Do not drop the computer or place heavy objects on top of the computer.
