I'm designing a tablet holder that can be taken into an operating room.
For sterilization and production reasons it would be aventageous if I would make the tablet attach to the holder via magnets.
I'm planning to use a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and then attach (probably glue) four magnets to its backside and have another four magnets attached to the tablet holder itself.
The major question for me is whether it if safe to put magnets of that strength right onto a computer.
The magnets don't need to be extremely strong. They only need to hold the tablet in case of a minor bump and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 weighs just under
800 grams - (1.7 lb).
So is this generally safe to do?
Or does it depends where exactly i put the magnets?
Or is this a really bad idea?
Might it be a better idea to glue only metal pieces to the back of the tablet and use slightly stronger magnets on the tablet holder itself in order not to have constant exposure to the magnets? (I know that the metal pieces would be magnetised)
