Solved Protecting your laptop on tropical weather Tags: Laptops Asus Last response: November 6, 2012 7:10 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share nico3d November 6, 2012 5:27:34 PM Hi Guys, I just bought an Asus Zenbook UX32VD to take with me traveling. I will be traveling in tropical countries for about 6 months and dry and deserted ones after, I'm worried about high humidity first and dust and sand later. What would be the best way to protect it from these things while transporting it?
