Even when running you will need to be careful. Too low on the Mercury and you will have it happen in progress as you run.
I am sorry I read this thread and this caught my eye. Running a computer in the cold will not cause condensation to form. It as others have mentioned when one brings the cold PC back into a warm environment that one should be concerned. It is then that the cold PC cools the warmer air to its dewpoint that condensation occurs.

My analogy will be eyeglasses for people in winter. They leave the warm house and go into the cold. Nothing happens aside from the warm glasses cooling. However, when a person with cold glasses enters a warm environment they "fog up". The cold glass cool the warm the air to dewpoint and condensation occurs.
