Bathroom laptopI saved the best for last. Yes, laptops are portable computers you can take almost anywhere, but come on! The bathroom is a veritable mine field of laptop dangers--water, hard floors, soap, slippery surfaces. Did I mention the water? This user may get lucky and never have an accident. But my cynical side knows better. This ThinkPad will likely end up in pieces on the ceramic tile or fried in the sink.
