Tough stuff: The laptop that fell to Earth

What can a laptop computer, an airplane ride, a hurtling-toward-the-ground satchel, and a happy reunion teach us about assembly? It can teach us that it’s good to have stuff snuggly and expertly assembled. We aim to excel in this area—kitting in Cincinnati is a specialty—and our ace teams are great at assembly services. Simply put, we love a great assembly story.

Yes, we are fans of anything in the assembly chain that is well made, well put-together, and well-intentioned. That’s why a recent news article caught our eye involving a laptop computer that was accidentally chucked out of a moving airplane, fell to the ground, and survived the impact. To be sure, this device underwent some premium assembly to survive a ride like that.
To the details:
A gentleman was flying over beautiful South Africa when his bag mistakenly fell out of the airplane at a height of 1,000 feet.
Hurtling toward the ground, it landed with a thud and was collected by a farm worker. Searching for identification, he pieced together clues (pretty good assembly skills here, as well, mind you), and the bag’s owner was notified. After a reunion, amazingly, the laptop computer turned back on. There was a bend, and the trackpad was knocked out of place, but it still worked. Now THAT is some sturdy assembly.
We salute the craftsmanship and well-put-together assembly that enables any laptop to continue after a skydive.
