Unibody MacBooks Are Strong

If you’ve held a unibody MacBook and a previous generation , you know the new unibody is a substantial improvement on an already solid frame. Even with that knowledge I’m surprised to see these pictures of a MacBook that survived Turkish Airlines Flight 1951 which crashed outside of Schiphol in February.

Noteworthy is that rather than a sharp bend in the frame which would have cracked the motherboard and potentially crushed the hard drive it instead only bent a few degrees. It looks like the board stayed at least mostly intact, at least enough to boot. The display is pretty busted but that’s to be expected.

Very impressive.
