It is unproven that touch screens laptops are easy to break. Nonetheless, 2-in-1 laptops open and close to 360 degrees, and thus require more attention than standard laptops.
Generally speaking, screens are fragile on any device, whether it’s touch or non-touch. If you drop a laptop or hit anything hard. The screen is likely to get damaged. So proper caring is needed as with any other laptop.
- One more point here is that the purpose of a touchscreen is to interact with it using fingers, or a stylus. As a result, upon forcefully rubbing a stylus, scratches can occur over time. This can be avoided by using a screen protector for the laptop.
- And if you are a student, you can use one of the laptop’s covers to make sure to enhance its safety even when it drops.
Some reasons why the screen gets damaged:
- Moisture which causes corrosion.
- Heat causing backlight failure.
- The pressure causing screen issues.
- Poor interconnects at the edge of the screen.
- Rugged handling dropping or jarring.
- Overextension of hinges or overuse constantly opening and closing.
- Having something between the keyboard and the screen when you close it.
