Notebooks & heat/cold

Just check the technical specs on the unit(s) you are interested in. These will be the temp ranges that the computer will function properly; calling for more info will get the temp extremes for storage. I was concerned about that years ago, but if you enclose it, as you must for security, you are dampening the heat/cold by the enclosure, and most units are functional over a large temperaturre range. Even storing in very cold temps will not generally harm a computer, but you may have to warm it up first in order for it to work properly.

Mine has sat in -15 to 95 degree temps for 6 years with no problem. Of course, if leaving the truck long term in these extremes, computer is brought inside.
