Yeah, at a former global based in Germany, the local head in Hong Kong 
once lost his temper for some reason and smashed his Thinkpad Tablet 
against the corner of something. He brought it back to me with a broken 
corner in the casing.

Ordered the bottom part of the casing, took the thing apart and replaced 
and the thing was good as new. Everything else seemed to have taken the 
beating without fuss. I wonder how a Dell or an Acer would have fared 
with that kind of abuse. Not so sure about a Macbook though...
