    Leaving Laptop in car in the Summer - any problems?

    I am contemplating using my laptop in the car. For convenience I would probably put the laptop under the seat when I park the car. But, will this be Okay in the Summer with outside temps in the low 90's and temps inside the parked car 110 +?

    I would be more worried about theft than the heat.

    Thanks for the thread. It looks like I have more to worry about in the Winter than the Summer.
