    Not a very good video, but still a bit fun to watch your favorite notebook get launched hundreds of feet into the air using a trebuchet.

    I think the Tablet survived a bit better (at least the body), but both of them took a pretty solid beating. Hopefully that brutality never happens to mine (I'll settle for surviving a five foot drop).

    I would have liked to have seen the first one with the screen facing the keyboard not outward although I suppose that was for dramatic effect.

    One thing that wasn't clear is whether they were using HDDs or SSDs. It looked vaguely like the drive pulled from the x200T was a 1.8" SSD (based on the way the pull tab was positioned in the test machine).
