I've tried searching but can't find an answer to these questions. I'm specifically looking for someone who has been in this situation and their recommendations and experiences but all advice is appreciated. Here is the back story: I've bought my first Apple computer (MBA 2012) and I absolutely love it. Last month I received a notification for deployment and I will be spending a year out in Afghanistan. 1. Anyone have experience with taking a MBA to Afghanistan? If so, how did it fair? I'm concerned that the dusty environment along with the living conditions could lead to damage. I really hate the idea of buying a cheaper windows computer but I will if the overall consensus is to not bring the MBA. 2. If I do bring it, any ideas on durable must-have accessories? (keyboard guards, hardcases, etc.) Thanks!
