Nice laptop you used to have

What a GREAT idea. Instead of draining your battery power you can expose your delicate LCD to unfiltered sunlight for hours at a time.

Do you think? I did wonder about that! True, UV is amazingly destructive stuff in general, but I don't think that moderate usage in sunlight is likely to be a serious threat to an LCD screen. I'm sure the coffee I drink continuously in its presence is just as risky!

Of course, I also just don't really know. Does anyone have any technical knowledge about how sensitive a MacBook screen is to sunlight?

And I don't want to baby a laptop, I want to USE it. I do all kinds of stuff with my laptop that is - gasp! - going to shorten it's lifetime. But even with hard use, my tangerine iBook was useful for 7 years.

I love to work outdoors, and have used this hint for a long time. It hasn't caused any noticeable problems.
