LCD Laptop and Sunlight

  rawprawn 17:29 09 Apr 2007

I have just bought a new Vaio Laptop with a 17" WXGA X-Black Screen. I have never had a lappy before. Can someone tell me if it is safe to use it outside on my patio in strong sunlight.(Apart from not being able to see it as well)

Yes safe to use but will warm up.

If it gets too hot will auto shut down.

A laptop cooler click here can be useful if you want to use it in warm conditions. Can be bought for approx £10 -£20
