Hope you're not including your monitor in that storage, because cold WILL destroy those.

Which is odd because the displays in our cars are unaffected

It's all got to do with condensation risk. Well that and different types of screens respond differently to cold. But mostly the condensation.

I thought it was that the LCD can actually freeze?

I dunno but the speakers in my car freeze, but the screens do not.

The majority here are Americans and they think winter means 30f.

You've never experienced chilly freedom, have you?

Yes, I've had a few $3000 laptops destroyed from sitting in my benz overnight during the winter.

I have! Skipped school this one time when I was 15, it was -20F out, -45F with windchill... on a windy day. It wasn't anywhere near a smart idea, but that was some chilly as f*** freedom.

Depends on how cold it gets and the type of screen. Some do some don't.

Condensation is the real enemy here. Computer components like being cold, but if there's any moisture in your car, it could leech into your PC.

I'll remind people again. Hot things becoming cold does not create condensation. Only when bringing the computer back inside would their be condensation.
