Safety Precautions
The following safety precautions will increase the life of the Eee PC. Follow
all precautions and instructions. Except as described in this manual, refer
all servicing to qualified personnel. Do not use damaged power cords,
accessories, or other peripherals. Do not use strong solvents such as
thinners, benzene, or other chemicals on or near the surface.
Disconnect the AC power before cleaning. Wipe the Eee PC using a
clean cellulose sponge or chamois cloth dampened with a solution
of nonabrasive detergent and a few drops of warm water and
remove any extra moisture with a dry cloth.
DO NOT place on uneven
or unstable work surfaces.
Seek servicing if the casing
has been damaged.
DO NOT place or drop objects
on top and do not shove any
foreign objects into the Eee
PC.
DO NOT expose to dirty or
dusty environments. DO
NOT operate during a gas
leak.
DO NOT expose to strong
magnetic or electrical fields.
DO NOT press or touch the
display panel. Do not place
together with small items
that may scratch or enter
the Eee PC.
DO NOT expose to or use near
liquids, rain, or moisture. DO
NOT use the modem during
electrical storms.
DO NOT leave the Eee PC
on your lap or any part
of the body to prevent
discomfort or injury from
heat exposure.
Battery safety warning: DO
NOT throw the battery in
fire. DO NOT short circuit the
contacts. DO NOT disassemble
the battery.
ASUS Eee PC
SAFE TEMP: This Eee PC
should only be used
in environments with
ambient temperatures
between 5°C (41°F) and
35°C (95°F)
INPUT RATING: Refer to the
rating label on the bottom
of the Eee PC and be sure
that your power adapter
complies with the rating.
DO NOT carry or cover a
Eee PC that is powered
ON with any materials that
will reduce air circulation
such as a carrying bag.
Incorrect installation of
battery may cause explosion
and damage the Eee PC.
DO NOT throw the Eee PC in municipal waste. This product has
been designed to enable proper reuse of parts and recycling. The
symbol of the crossed out wheeled bin indicates that the product
(electrical, electronic equipment and mercury-containing button
cell battery) should not be placed in municipal waste. Check local
regulations for disposal of electronic products.
DO NOT throw the battery in municipal waste. The symbol of the
crossed out wheeled bin indicates that the battery should not be
placed in municipal waste.
Transportation Precautions
To prepare your Eee PC for transport, you should turn it OFF and
disconnect all external peripherals to prevent damage to the
connectors. The hard disk drive’s head retracts when the power is turned
OFF to prevent scratching of the hard disk surface during transport.
Therefore, you should not transport your Eee PC while the power
is still ON. Close the display panel to protect the keyboard and display
panel.
The Eee PC’s surface is easily dulled if not properly cared for. Be careful
not to rub or scrape surfaces when transporting your Eee PC. You can put
your Eee PC in a carrying case for protection from dirt, water, shock, and
scratches.

Table of Contents
Charging Your Batteries
If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your battery
pack before going on long trips. Remember that the power adapter
charges the battery pack as long as it is plugged into the computer and an
AC power source. Be aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery
pack when the Eee PC is in use.
Remember to fully charge the battery (8 hours or more) before first use
and whenever it is depleted to prolong battery life. The battery reaches its
maximmum capacity after a few full charging and discharging cycles.
Airplane Precautions
Contact your airline if you want to use the Eee PC on the airplane. Most
airlines have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most airlines allow
electronic use only between and not during takeoffs and landings.
There are three main types of airport security devices: X-ray
machines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic
detectors (used on people walking through security checks), and
magnetic wands (hand-held devices used on people or individual
items). You can send your Eee PC and diskettes through airport X-ray
machines. However, it is recommended that you do not send your
Eee PC or diskettes through airport magnetic detectors or expose
them to magnetic wands.
