captainchetco is on a distinguished road
Has anyone ever tried opening a lap top and spraying it with "Corrosion Block" or CRC "Corrosion Inhibitor? I'm thinking of trying it with a garage sale old laptop. Any thoughts?
Not from personal experience, but from a couple who have been cruising since 1997, they have found the life of all of the lap tops they have purchased, (all the common brands, but I'm not sure about "Toughbook") regardless of price, is 18 months to 2 years. They keep a spare one, an external drive for backup, and just buy a new one on this schedule.
