Things to remember

Battery life is approximately 4 hours. A warning will appear when the battery is at 20% capacity or lower, but its always a good idea to save your work regularly. If the device does switch off unexpectedly you will need to log back in within half an hour to recover any unsaved work from your last session.

Saving files - Files should not be saved to the desktop on these computers. Files can be saved to your U drive or to a USB device.
