The convenience of a laptop is that it's portable, right?
Did you know where you put it could put your life in danger?
Computer experts say putting your computer on a pillow, bed or couch, could cause it to overheat.
That can cause damage to your computer, and possibly you.

“The main thing they could do would be burn the processor or C-P-U, will get really hot and kill the C-P-U, that’s the biggest danger, dust and dirt gets sucked in through these fans so if that gets clogged up there is a slight possibility of a fire.” 1 Guy and a Mouse Owner Tom Browning said.

To help keep the fans on your laptop clean and working properly, you can spray air into the laptop radiator to clean it out.
