Laptops, tablets & cold weather

Now that it appears winter is well and truly here, its not a good idea to leave laptops / tablets / phones anywhere that they can get really cold, such as in the boot of the car or on the back seat.

Very cold temperatures don’t agree with the screens fitted to most of these devices, also if they end up covered in condensation it doesn’t do them any good at all. Best to bring them into the house or office at night, and keep them somewhere away from the cold.

If you do end up with a very cold computer, let it warm up to room temperature before you use it. It will be slow and the screen may well be unresponsive for a while until it reaches a suitable temperature.
