on indestructible powerbooks

on the weekend, a friend conveyed to me a story about him being in the apple store in london and someone dropping a powerbook from the first floor and hitting the ground floor. i presume accidentally, or maybe just frustrated or wanting an excuse to buy a macbook pro.

allegedly the powerbook survived in one piece, and no one got hurt. it puts the shame to me making a big deal about denting my powerbook.

on a related note, scott stevenson showed a photo passed around via email with a thoroughly abused powerbook.
