    I've dropped my MacBook twice, dropped a plastic box and a PCI modem card on it, scratched the shit out of it from having no rubber feet on it, lost two screws, put a tiny crack on the screen, tiny crack on the trackpad…

    But that looks painful.

    That sucks. Good thing you can completely replace it for under $10, though!

    Here's how: link

    Haha. I said I did all that, but it still works fine :)

    I'm not being all pro mac, and "everything that isn't a mac is shit", but a lot of laptops would have taken much more damage from those drops.

    I don't use laptops much so I don't have any stories myself, but surely Apple's plastic is not any stronger than any other laptop's plastic? Come to think of it, I don't think any electronic item that I've ever dropped broke or suffered any major damage from the drop.

    Some guy threw his Macbook out a car window while the car was in motion and it was fine, just crunched up a bit. Those things are tough.

    It got crunched up a bit? Sounds kind of weak to me. I don't have a laptop for comparison, so I'm going to go the smartphone route. Then again, I do have a Nokia smartphone, so I guess I may just be used to more durable products.

    For comparison:
    Apple product:


    Nokia product:

    No, MacBook Pros are made of Aluminium, not Plastic.
    Also, it's carved aluminium… so they start with a block and drill it out (instead of casting it, or pressing it), which means it's really strong.

    I've heard somewhere online, someone threw an MBP down the stairs… TWICE, and it was still fine, just a couple of dents along the sides.

    This is a photo of my laptop after I dropped it about 3ft onto a thin carpet with concrete underneath it (by accident… I didn't realise my bag was open when I picked it up). Just a tiny dent on the corner. Didn't even switch off or lose data.

    It got tossed out of a moving car, so yeah, even a Nokia would be pretty beat up. Like SkinnyBill says in the post below this one, Macbooks are made of aluminum, not normal laptop plastic.

    I just tossed my Nokia out of a moving car. It was fine. What is your point?
