My Laptop

I am staying at Gentle Winds and the laptop is connected by a sliding glass door with breezes. Will it ruin my computer by having it sitting on the table with the wind coming in and humidity down here. I have been putting a towel over it when not in use. What would you do? Thanks

It shouldn't hurt anything. A lot of people have laptops on boats so if the wind and salt don't do damage, then you shouldn't have a problem. I use my laptop outside daily (like I am now) with no ill effects.

Over a period of time there is a possibility that all electronic stuff can be adversely affected by excess humidity and salty air.

Computers, sound systems, TV's, computers and accesories can and will rust and develop problems after regular exposure to conditions in the Caribbean. And for that matter on the coast of California and the Atlantic Coast of America....,etc.

If your equipment is regularly exposed to those conditions, try to find ways of protecting it to extend the life.

I agree with stxer's apt summation. Pretty much everything built these days is manufactured everywhere with the built-in obsolescence factor and anything electronic certainly has a hard time in the tropics or anywhere else where corrosive salt has its way.

Intertwined with that glittering generality, Sahara dust is also destructive. and during the summer months here when that hazy cloud leaves that gritty "dust" all over, you're well advised to protect your electronics with good dust covers. Cheers!
