Hardware question: How big a risk of heat damage would I be taking by leaving my laptop in a car that's parked outside, in the shade, in ~85 degree (F) weather for a week+?
I know that the car will get much hotter than the outside temperature. On the other hand, that's still much cooler than the running temperature of a laptop under load. On the third hand, the heat under load is concentrated in areas that are designed for it; I'm not sure how other components would do.
Anyone have thoughts?
@codesections I’d be comfortable leaving it powered off in the trunk in that scenario. The trunk doesn’t get nearly as hot as the cabin.
