    Hello to some of my favorite forum goers,

    Alaska is very cold. With my last laptop (white MacBook) I would often leave my backpack (laptop inside, sleeping) in my car while I was at work, because sometimes I have to go straight from school to work and I'd rather it was locked securely in my vehicle than sitting around in my building.

    It ranges from about -15˚F to 35˚F here in the winter.

    Apple operating temperature range: 50˚F-95˚F
    Storage (off, not sleeping, I would assume) temperature range: -13˚F-113˚F

    Does anyone have personal experience or somewhat definitive proof/advice of whether this may cause damage to my system? I suppose shutting it down beforehand might be a good idea. I'm mainly worried about opening it up and using it directly afterwords, in a room temperature building. I never experienced any abnormalities while using my white MacBook this way.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just beware with the condense. As you go from cold to warm room leave it in the nicely zipped bag for half an hour or more and everything will be ok :)
