Why I Buy Thinkpads - The Data Stays Intact, No Matter What
At Gadgetoff 2009, a team of tinkerers used (with Lenovos blessing) their trebuchet to launch two ThinkPad (X200t, T400) laptops to see how they would fare after the test.
The result? Well, they were pretty thoroughly destroyed, but apparently, when taken off the systems and installed in a new one, the trashed laptop’s hard drives booted just fine.
Oh, and take a look at the video where they use the Trebuchet to shoot fireballs (Yes, yes, fire, fire, fire!).
