MacBook Pro 13″ gets dropped at 195mph… but wait it still boots!
Here’s a Mac heartbreaker: a motorcycle enthusiast went for a ride carrying his MacBook Pro 13″ in a backpack, unfortunately the zipper holding the MacBook Pro in place failed going a reported 195mph (315km/h)!
it was a nice Sunday afternoon and the boys wen out for a ride… on some damn powerful motorcycles…
One of them took his brand new MabBook Pro 13″ on his standard back pack…
When testing the bike at 315km/h [195mph], the backpack zip started to fail… and all of the sudden, the macbook flew trough the air… landing on the side of the road, beginning a series of turns and crushes from about 150 meters… while being torn apart.
The aluminum is really bent up and even cracked in some places, the screen is completely destroyed, and there was some internal damage. Obviously the damage is pretty severe, but amazingly enough there is a slightly happy ending: the machine still boots when hooked to an external monitor!
the best part… we try to make it work again…. and we could!!!
the hard disk, motherboard and superdrive survived! and with an external monitor, keyboard/mouse and new ddr3 memory modules… it booted!!
What a bummer about the MacBook Pro, but the fact that it can still boot is pretty impressive, you’ve got to give credit to the tough aluminum shell. The quotes are from and more pictures are at NeoWin Forums, thanks for sending this in Kevin!
