E1505 in Below Freezing Temperatures

  • Dell support has told me my Inspiron E1505 is marked to work fine at down to 22 degreess F. Has anyone actually tried using their laptop in a temperature similar or colder than this and if so were there any problems with the LCD screen? Most have told me the computer will perform better in cold conditions as it keeps the processor cool etc. My concern is the LCD monitor freezing up! Being that this will be used for extended periods of time on cold onditions I would feel better knowing thers have done so successfully!
     
    Thank you.

    Well LCD is Liquid Chrystal Display, so i'm pretty sure at a certain temperature it will freeze and it will stay there until it's in a room temperature or so.  Not sure tho.
  • Google computer cold weather and you'll find lots of info. http://mobileoffice.about.com/od/laptopstabletpcs/tp/coldweathertips.htm
  • I think the only notebook that will probally work in freezing tempretures,is the Panasonic Toughbook. But a colder room is better for the notebook as the processor is running cooler.
