Had an interesting question from a friend today. They are taking a trip to the West soon and wondered if there would be a problem leaving their laptop in the car while they were touring around one of the national parks for 10-12 hours.
My response was that as long as the laptop was in it’s bag, and the bag was out of the sunlight, in a trunk for example, that I didn’t think there’d be that much of an issue. Certainly, the machine will get some heat, but since it won’t be in use in that heat, and surely would cool off by the time you drove to a nearby hotel and got ready to use it, I’m not sure there’d be enough heat to cause any harm.
Really, my experience with processors or batteries overheating really sort of assumes the machine in on and working when it happens. 😉
What about you guys? Ever had a problem with a laptop overheating just from the outside heat? Any other advice you would have given?
