Will the steam from the shower in my bathroom hurt my laptop?

I have a fairly large ensuite with an open (no shower curtain or screen) spa bathtub with a shower nozzle above it. I would like to bring my laptop into the bathroom with me each morning to listen to music while I'm having my shower. The stand that I would put the laptop on is quite near the door to my bedroom and about 2 metres from the shower. The mirror, which is next to where the laptop would be, gets fairly foggy in the course of my shower, which would indicate how much steam is coming near the laptop.
So, the question: will this level of regular exposure to condensation damage my laptop?
Please, no 'just get a fan', 'use a different music device' etc suggestions - I'm definitely exploring those options too but would really like to find out if using the laptop would be okay.
