Microsoft Surface tablet survives a 30-inch drop test while shooting video
The Microsoft Surface RT tablet survived after being dropped onto hardwood floor from a height of 30 inches (76.2 centimeters). And to make the test even more challenging, the unit being tested was working during the drop – it was recording a 1080p video with its camera, and the impact did not seem to affect its operation.
So yeah, the footage below does not only demonstrate how tough the tablet is, but also gives us an idea as to how good of a video its main snapper can capture. Judging by the expressions on their faces, the guys at Microsoft must be very excited about their creation. Now check out the video and tell us what you think in the comments!

I knew that it was probably a rhetorical question, but there is a chance that it wont because it is made af Magnesium, which is very strong and very light. If it is heated enough, it will ignite and blind people though.

wait till CNET test's it in their torture tests I already know the Surface pro may fail the
water test because it has side vents to dissipate the heat from it's Intel CPU. but if it turns back on after it is dried out it will pass the test
