All the bells and whistles and a EVDO card from Verizon. Was working on the kitchen counter top, had it in it's travel case with the top unzipped and flap open. Stepped away to make some dinner and came back. Closed the laptop and the flap while eating and when I returned I snatched the handle and walked away with the case.
To my surprise the laptop flew out of the side flap and slammed on the hardwood floor... BAM, flat on it's bottom and slid against a cabinet... BAM again. Took a big gasp and picked it up. Was still in one piece. Opened it up and the screen and keyboard was in one piece.
So....... I turned it back on and immediately went into F8 for safe mode and did a chkdsk/f. Seemed to be OK... Rebooted and fired up XP Tablet... It too fired up OK... waiting, waiting... wireless hooked up and found the network. Whewwwwwwww
No damage on the outside and it fired up, even the EDVO card hooked up... man-o-man am I lucky... set the tools to do a scandisk and file check, still no damage!
Just call me lucky! !
