PC Mag used to do laptop torture tests, e.g. drops, spilling coffee, etc, I am not sure if they still do it.

The chassis is magnesium alloy, and I would like to know if it cracked or deformed in any way, as well as details about the impact.
Since nobody seems willing to subject their notebook to such a stress test, , the damage info would be a good tidbit of info. I think curiosity keeps everyone returning to this thread because the biggest thing people fear regarding their notebooks is gravity.
My 9200 slid off my couche and landed on very soft carpet. It fell all of twenty inches, but still I let out a barely audiable squeek like a little girl.
