Logic Supply Runs Over a PC With a Toyota Pickup Truck

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 15 comments

Logic Supply has kindly showed us a number of videos of them attempting to destroy one of its PCs. Emphasis goes towards the word 'attempting'.

A short while ago the folks over at Logic Supply decided that the teeny weeny amount of negative feedback they got about one of their videos attempting to destroy one of their PCs was too much. The original video, as seen below, showed someone hitting a AU912 with a bat, in a bit of a restrained fashion:

How Rugged Are Our Computers?

After the negative feedback, Logic Supply decided to give the man another attempt at bashing the PC with a bat, in a way that showed a bit more aggression:

Baseball Bat Ruggedness Test: Round 2

Of course, Logic Supply had to live up to its promise of running over it with a truck, and so Chris Hovious did:

Rugged Computer Run Over With a Truck

While we can still question in what kind of scenario any PC would 'accidentally' get run over by a truck, there is some comfort to be found in knowing that if, just if, your neighbor is getting tired of your loud music and decides to run over your PC, he won't succeed in destroying it.

    I think the real question is does the PC still run after being ran over? The shock vibration etc just from being thrown around like that could have destroyed the internals. While leaving the out side in good condition. I would have liked to see them hook it up and used it.

    @alxianthelast "bogus.. that toyota was filled with helium."
    I had my toes run over by an ignorant idiot with a SUV and much to my surprise, I barely felt it. Those pickups and SUVs with large tires distribute the weight over a MUCH greater area. The total weight distribution is literally in the 3-4 pounds per square inch. The baseball bat demonstration is more destructive.

    But what happens when they use a real pickup instead of a "Toy"ota?

    They should let me try to destroy it. Then I'd be more impressed.

    I am more likely to spill my coffee on the computer than run it over with a truck, yet I bet this there is no protection from liquids in this PC. This demonstration is as useful as demonstrating that its protected from accidental alien probing.
