Not the best idea for it and it will probably fail years earier than normal, but it will work as long as no rain/snow hits it. It's like leaving a bike outside, it will be solid for a while, but then you'll see rust, humidity and temperature changes will move components around. I'd get a laptop and bring it out when you want to use it, unless you don't plan on the PC being reliable past a year or so.

Moisture is bad. You can short out hardware, and promote corrosion. Depending on where you live, if it gets real hot, heat is also hard on hardware.

Thank You! I will have to wait, I donot think I can use a wireless lap top with my service yet. I donot have high speed internet service.
