Do you leave the laptop out when not in use? I've been bringing mine in each time. (that might be worse?)
I wondered about getting one of those little NUC intel computer boxes and leaving it in the dome?
around 23f here currently.
I have had my laptop out in the observatory testing scopes this last week in temperatures below 30 degrees. After about 2 hours the laptop begins to malfunction and programs begin to slow down. I solved that by using a Kendrik's laptop heater pad (takes about 3.5 amps at 12 volts). Now my laptop is happy and runs all night long without dropping out. 25 degrees is too cold for laptops.
