Default Now that's cool!



Okay, my system doesn't always run that cold. It was left in my car for a couple hours and it's about 40 degrees out I'd say. My question is, is this okay for my laptop? What about condensation? Should I be wrapping my laptop up in a blanket or something when I'm in class?

36 degrees Celcius? That definitely doesn't seem too cold.

36 degrees celcius isnt cold at all, thats like a very hot summer day.

In terms of computers, thats about standard.

Hmmm. Does it make any difference that it's a notebook? Right now I'm at 65 degrees.

Notebooks are always hot, they lack in cooling.
