I'm going up to Leadville this weekend, staying at a hotel for one night and 
then doing a ski hut trip. My wife needs to do some work, so I'm planning to 
bring a laptop (IBM thinkpad T40), but the laptop will end up sitting in the 
car for two cold days and one very cold night while we're at the hut. I'm 
thinking I'll leave the battery at home since we won't need it in the hotel. 
As long as it rewarms slowly, should I be otherwise concerned? As far as I 
know they don't ship laptops to stores in heated trucks in the winter... or 
do they?
