Thats awesome! And just think, we have people crying about it not being tough enough.
That's pretty good.
Bless the passengers.
That's one tough laptop. Hope he gets better (not the laptop, the owner)
we all agree that air is a perfect laptop.
just remember don't put it on the back itself in your car.
check this news, it's not air though.
Brings new meaning to the term Macbook "Air"
Macbook Airlines, how may we help you?
That looks broken to me.
Get an external monitor and it will be fine!
Jesus that's warped to buggery, I wonder what the resale value of it will be now...
Lucky guy really, lucky machine too...
Apparently Safari seems snappier!
Geez... being taken to within in inch of my life in a plane crash? I'd keep it for that novelty value alone.
Years from now he'll be telling the story. "And here's the computer! It still works!"
I wonder if the adamo could survive that
It might actually increase now.
It Apple was smart, they would offer to replace it, then use it as a marketing tool, and have it on display at 1 Infinite Loop.
I wonder how something deliberately toughened (like the Panasonic Toughbook) would have fared.
Lenovo has a nice page on various catasrophes their notebooks survive
such as a house fire , being submerged in hurricane Catrina, being rolled over by a truck, etc.
I think it's safe to say that any Thinkpad would have fared much better through any incident that the Macbook Air goes through. Try dropping a Thinkpad or a Macbook Air from a height of 5ft. I would have my money on the Thinkpad. Not to mention I have a Latitude D420 and can stack 5 or 6 really thick college textbooks on top of it and the casing would not even flex one bit. When I tried this on my Macbook Air, the thing started bending after 1 book. Keep in mind these are 1500 page textbooks.
Oh please, a MacBook Air with a damaged screen is more newsworthy than the deaths in the crash?
Man.. That thing is really "bent" outta shape.
I hope the passengers are okay.
I was thinking the same exact thing!
'tis but a scratch...
That would make one really cool background
On a gadget website?
Nice pics; sorry for the passengers and their families.
