    Yes this is a little off topic, but I really need your help/knowlege.

    My father is going to have chemotherapy in a few more days, he will be in confinement in the hospital, because of the surgery he just had to remove a tumor, attached to the vocal cords, he has to stay in the hospital. I want to leave my iBook G4 laptop with him to watch movies and recorded tv shows with (hospital tv sucks, only 2 channels work and one is in spanish).
    his body will emit radiation 7-10ft radius.

    What will happen to this laptop from that? Hardware damage? Display damage?

    I posted help in the apple forum, but thoes guys dont respond.
    Any ideas/knowlege would help A-LOT!!!!!

    I ask you here cause you guys/gals respond freakin fast with great answers to other peoples request for help.

    Thanks, Brad

    The last thing I'd be worried about is damaged to my laptop. Never-the-less, it should be fine.

    Yeah, I think computers are fairly immune to radioactive objects. Unless an EMP goes off. ;)

    It should not be a problem. There are two types of radiation with charge, alpha radiation (basically helium nuclei with a 2+ charge) would be stopped by a piece of paper so they would likely not exit his skin. Beta radiation (an electron) is a little bit stronger but even that is stopped easily, so it wouldn't be a problem. This leaves gamma radiation which would easily travel that far, but it is just a photon, no charge, so it can't cause any damage to your computer. Also this is my first post. My prayers are with your father
