    My 12" Powerbook has some kind of motion sensor that, if memory serves correctly, detected sudden drops so the HDD could prepare for an impact.

    And this is just out of pure curiosity, but do modern Macbook Pros still have that feature?

    Yes, they have.
    It's called the Sudden Motion Sensor.

    Yup, provided the MBP has a hard disk. SSD equipped laptops don't need one ;)
