Altitude issues

Did you know that your laptop can get altitude sickness as well? While my treasured computer might not get symptoms that include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping, and dizziness, it might suffer from the low oxygen supply too.

As I was doing some last-minute preparations ahead of my trip to South America on Monday, I meticulously checked my gear – mainly my portable office, to make sure everything is working just fine. And to my surprise I figured that the maximum operating altitude is 10,000 feet (3048 meters). Being the fussy self that I am, I had to get to the bottom of it and I kept the people at Cupertino busy with my questions what might happen if. They were even grateful that I raised the topic as they were also not aware about it J. But in the end, they could not really tell me what if… Just that they will not guarantee 100% functionality.

Anyways, the wellbeing of my iOS operated travel companion might be a good excuse for me to work less and explore more ;).
