well it would depend on your moisture level in your room, if it is very high then i would say a humidafier would help.

No, it won't affect your computer.

To my views, it won't affect anything on the computer. Dry or humid, they're operating, but as long as there's no steam, you're good. It can rust the case!

yeah it's not going to really affect performance or anything but it might help the life of your computer.

Yeah.

It shouldn't really make your computer's performance better or worse. I have a humidifier in my room too. Computers send out dry air and it makes it really unpleasant to be in such a dry atmosphere.

oh yeah lol, I wasn't thinking. Most people get de-humidifiers so I didn't know they made such a thing as a humidifier.
