Radmin posted this rather unfortunate placement of a laptop’s power button.
Although this could be a lot worse, it still isn’t a good idea to put the power button so close to another button. I hit ESC often – like to close out of full-screen – and I don’t want to close anything let alone shut the computer off.
Take a look at a good example of power button placement, the Apple Macbook Pro:
I do understand that sometimes there isn’t always enough room to play around with, the designers should take care to be sure the power button isn’t hit accidentally. I know they usually have a time limit that you need to push the button before it actually takes action. Just keep this in mind when you’re searching for a new computer. This isn’t something that you usually take into account.
