Any ideas on how durable this amazing machine is?

Ie. Pressure on closed screen, dropped, etc. Assume SSD and fan is only moving part (empty drive).

Hi Dorrulf,

I actually dropped my backpack with my laptop in it, about a month into ownership. I use an Oakely Kitchen Sink, with a shell rain jacket on the bottom. I was getting out of my car in the garage and the strap slipped from my grasp, hitting the concrete a couple feet over. The only indication of damage is the lower left part of the laptop is a bit uneven and the CD tray is barely out of line.

I routinely carry my laptop on a bus and train, with the backup usually stuff. The screen hasn't seem to have had any issues with this, even when laying on it's back when put in a rack on the bus. I usually slide the laptop in with the CD tray up, so I think I end up having the screen facing into the pack, where I have a small bag for cables and another sturdy case for external drive + thumbsticks. I live in Seattle and the rain hasn't has any affect on it yet either in 6 months of ownership. I don't walk with an umbrella, instead using the shell rain jacket stowed away.

I hope this helps, though its not a full accounting of everything you're looking for.

Actually that's a pretty good account and I appreciate it. It does give me some insight thanks :)

I dropped my JH a week ago, without any casing and it was powered on, well I tripped over the power cable(you know what I mean). It fell around 2-3 feet. I checked the casing, no evident damage, I also ran a disk check to see if my HDD was damaged, I in fact ran it 4-5 time in 3 days and it would seem nothing was damaged.

Maybe I was lucky, I don't know, usually the HDD gets damaged when it's spinning just because of a small bump.
I wouldn't get my hopes up, the laptop in fact wasn't made to be carried around a lot, not to mention that it wasn't constructed to endure bumps :D

Btw, nearly got a heart attack when it fell -.-"

Hope I could help
