You need to be careful when exposing a laptop computer to below freezing temps. Here are Apple's official storage/operating temps recommendations:

Operating temperature: 50 to 95 F (10 to 35 C)
Storage temperature: -13 to 113 F (-25 to 45 C)

Notice the gap between the lowest storage temp (-13F) and the lowest operating temp (50F). Basically what this is saying is...if the computer is exposed to temps below 50F for an extended period of time (long enough that the overall temp of the computer gets below 50F). Then you need to warm up the computer to at least 50F before turning it on.

In reality...you may not always need to do this. But this is what Apple recommends.
