    i just dropped my macbook 5 feet to the ground, and it was as if nothing happened. Other laptops would have shattered into a hundred pieces and seized to function . Gotta love it...

    Don't push your luck. You got very lucky and it must have fell in the perfect way for nothing to brake.

    How about your drop it again and let us know how that one goes? ;)

    Also, my three year old HP laptop has suffered many equivalent falls and hasn't yet died.

    Mystery solved. Most laptops will servive a fall onto carpet (though it largly depends on how soft and plush the carpet is).

    Grumpy grammar nazi post follows:

    Seized = Ceased, in this context.

    Brake should be BREAK (braking is done by pushing the BRAKE pedal on a car to slow said car down. BREAK is to damage something).

    Hight = Height

    Servived = survived.

    Sorry.....I'm crabby tonight after trying to make a Windoze machine work (why does a simple hardware upgrade always make my brother's PC decide to have fits????) and this stuff drives me nuts even when not crabby. Don't even get me started on their, they're and there, or to, too, and two. AUGH!
