    Angry Laptops with removable batteries

    Do you see problem with laptops with unremovable batteries?


    I mean, otherwise I may never know whether it was completely shut down,
    and there is nothing running outside my control, and it won't explode with
    remote command when I'm away.

    This is not a linux question of course.

    I'm trying to buy a really good laptop and almost all don't have removable batteries.
    ....
    I had a laptop with unremovable battery: actually it was removable but required screwdriver, but I didn;t remove it,
    and new ones are totally embedded and can be removed without killing the laptop completely.
    That laptop died for no reason at all, although I almost never used it.


    Another expensive laptop died for no reason maybe just because I covered finger recognition area, and camera and microphone with paper,.

    Only that if you keep laptop past battery life it'll be harder/cost more to replace over a removable one.
    (- though there are tons of garbage removable replacements for sale online..

    I mean, otherwise I may never know whether it was completely shut down
    In linux if you shutdown it's shutdown. In windows it's trivial to search how to do a complete shutdown

    and it won't explode with remote command when I'm away.
    Seriously?

    business grade laptops should have removable batteries available as well as stronger batteries (as an upgrade).

    Well, laptops have been known to catch fire while charging so I guess just disconnect it from the power while away / sleep and turn your wifi off so no one can hack into your wifi and send a signal to your laptop.

    I've seen modern laptops with inbuilt covers for their cameras.

    My current laptop doesn't have a removable battery, something I've never thought of because as previous replacement batteries are often junk and normally last as long as the useful life of the laptop. I've had hinges, screens and drives fail before the battery. Look at Dell but I think you'll be getting the screwdriver out to service most of them.

    People want thin and light laptops like apple macs, but not apple mac prices so we get nvme drives, we lose the headphone jack, the dvd drive and the removable battery.

    In fact, I'm staring at my laptop wondering if my jedi mind powers will cause it to combust. It's been about 30 minutes and it's not even getting warm yet
