    ok so i was just walking towards my desk to use my MacBook, when all of a sudden there was a huge flash of lightning. there was a flash at my desk next to my MacBook.

    I always unplug my computers during lightning storms but this was the first strike. I am using the MacBook now and it seems to be ok.

    What do you guys think?

    It sounds pretty electrifying. :) I'm sure your computer is fine. Did it shock you when you touched it? ;) Zaaap!

    If it's running I think it doesn't matter.

    If it were hit, you'd know it.

    If you value it, and it's electronic, have it behind a GOOD quality surge protector (and unplug it for good measure in storms).
