    Can freezing temperatures damage a laptop?

    I frequently leave my laptop (inside the case) inside my car in below freezing temperatures. I've never left it there over night, but sometimes for several hours. Is there any way that cold temperatures could damage a computer? I'm not talking about subzero, but 20's and 30's Fahrenheit.

    I would check the user's manual and see if anything specific is mentioned regarding this.

    My initial reaction is that it more than likely would not be that temps such as you are encountering are a direct problem. The difficulty would actually be when moving the ice cold computer indoors, and the old...cold glass of water, warm room scenario...

    I'd be more concerned about condensation...
