    Hello, all. What is the safe operational temperature range for the Macbook Air? Not so much with regard to the computer overheating itself, but with regard to where I am while I use it. Can I sit outside in 98 degree weather and use it for three hours? Can I sit outside in 55 degree weather and use it? Or are these temperatures already outside the temperature range to which it may safely be exposed? I would love any detail that anyone could provide about such an operational temperature range. Thanks!

    According to Apple's Technical Specifications page for the Air:http://www.apple.com/macbook-air/specs.html
    So you might not want to stay out too long in the 98 F weather, but the 55 should be OK. Humidity is also a factor to consider.

    Good luck with your new Mac!

    I can't imagine doing anything but sweating like a pig in 98F weather, much less be using a computer. Drinking beer, perhaps. Not use a computer. :D

    Why the heck would you even contemplate doing that? :confused:
