Hi guys,

I have an asus zenbook laptop (non removable battery) and currently not needed and thinking of storing it away for a long time.

Not quite sure what would be best to do? Fully charge or drain it before storage?

Thanks :)

My advice would be to backup the hdd and sell it. The longer you keep it the less its worth and before you know it its only worth $50 and its needs a new battery because you just cant preserve those. In a few years you find that you need a laptop, just use the funds you got from selling this one to buy a new one, You get newer and more powerful technology and dont have to worry about how you are going to replace a dvd drive when they dont exist anymore. LoL

Hi, thanks for your advice. I rarely use it now since I've just set up a new computer but I liked it a lot and would love to keep it with me :)
