Which Falls Faster, Josh or a MacBook Pro?

On November 26, 2007, in Blego, by Josh Hallett

Those of you that follow me via Twitter learned last weekend that I feel down some stairs. That in itself was not fun, luckily I didn’t break anything and came away with a nice hematoma, that as of today is a nice yellow-brown color.

However, I wasn’t the only thing that fell down the stairs. My MacBook Pro joined me in the ‘flight’ down the flight of stairs. What was surreal is that the entire fall seemed to last forever and the entire time I saw my Mac sliding next to me, just out of reach.

We did reach the bottom at the same time, which answers the age-old question, which falls faster Josh or a MacBook Pro….it’s a trick question, they fall at the same rate.

MacBook Pro Damage

The damage to the MBP was mostly cosmetic as you can see, but it still requires a bit of repair to the external case. Could have been worse though.

    So what’s the price for the repair? I’m guessing around 1200 bucks if apple does it.
    check :)

    I’ve dropped my powerbook twice, and still works basically the same (the drive slot is a little mangled, but still works). Remember kids, don’t handle your expensive gear after a bottle of wine in Paris ;)

    I threw my bag whilst drunk…. the post is here explaining it
    Anyway I fixed it myself for a lot cheaper than the $800 Apple wanted! I still have various screws and bits of plastic that never made it back in. But it works!

    Glad to see you survived the fall in good shape, Josh. You would certainly be a lot harder to replace than your MBP.
