Why you shouldn’t drop your MBP
When I was racing around between work and the Hospital, in the days just after Asher was born, I inadvertently dropped my MBP. In my haste to get into my car I bumped the bag, and the strap slid off my shoulder followed by a fairly solid thud. Fortunately it was in it’s Crumpler ‘the Part and Parcel’ bag, and the drop was only a few inches, but enough to do some damage. The aluminum casing bends, which is better I guess than snapping or shattering.
End result is the case was pushed in a bit, squeezing out the USB port on the power side, there would have been tears if there was more damage than that!
Thankfully it functions normally.
