Extreme Weather Computing

So we're in a bit of a deep freeze at the moment. Can this harm your computer?

Your machine is more likely to be damaged from heat rather than the cold, HOWEVER - going from cold to hot can cause condensation. As you likely no, water and electronics are not friends.

Many of you may not have made it into work today, opting to work at a nearby cafe instead of braving a lengthy drive on the treacherous roads. If you spend some time walking to the cafe, or need to leave your computer in the car for a while, beware of bringing it into the warmth of an indoor venue.

When transporting your laptop through the cold weather, be sure to keep it in its carrying case at all times. Once you've made it into a warm shelter, give it 5 or 10 minutes before turning it on.

Be sure to consult the computer's manual for specifications on its components' optimal operating temperatures if you must work in extreme temperatures.
