    These are just a few of Thinkpad stress test videos on the internet. The newer MIL-SPEC Thinkpads should still be able to withstand at least when you stand on them. So I invite those who really trust their Thinkpads to try that and tell us how it went, or even better put a video.

    This is how a 18mm retina MacBook handles the test. Cnet, but still.

    You first. And it would be nice if there were videos of people stepping on other business laptops rather than just that other company.

    I'll get my thinkpad after a month or so, but for now I can only test my very very old Compaq workstation. Thank you Patchy San for being the first :) Btw, which model is this, T61?

    Sorry for the bad quality and my flip-flops :)

    Yeah it's my 2007 14.1" ThinkPad T61. But here's my 2011 ThinkPad T420, I did a video just to prove I'm not bluffing.

    :D

    I use the EVO sometimes when I learn/play with linux. My main computer is a multimedia Asus notebook, which would definitely break if tried this.
