    The easiest way is to contact him via Discord - he's almost always online in the LiquidHz Server.

    I wouldn't use mine outside, but wouldn't walking from car and around campus or something freeze it?

    There is a big diff between 0 F and 0 C. 0C is 32F. I would not expose the LM to freezing temps.

    I expect you to have a good laptop bag. Many of them isolate well. And you shouldn't fire up your laptop immediately when yoo come inside, if your laptop has been exposed by the coold long time. See ... condensation:rolleyes:

    Well, I have an alienware vindicator, and it wouldn't necessarily be sitting in the cold. Basically just walking around campus a bit with it in the bag.

    Yeah, same as you wear clothes. Shouldn't be icecold. Hence no problems as you never fire up an ice cold notebook;) Or similar as yoo never walking outside naked in the cold:D
