Comment on "Nearly-Invincible Powerbook"
by tiffany — Apr 04
I completely believe it. I happen to know that a clamshell iBook can survive being thrown from the roof of a Toyota Corolla. Not that I would ever leave my laptop on top of my car and then drive halfway to Alabama before saying, "Where's my computer?" but um... this happened to like, this really stupid girl I knew.

It looked AWFUL, but you know the dang thing booted, and actually functioned moderately well (except for the CD-rom drive, which fell out on impact) for almost two years before we had to replace it because... wait for it... power supply issues. The same reason I've had to replace every Mac laptop I've ever owned.
