He left it on top of the car. It flew off into the middle of the closest intersection. We left shortly after he did and hubby spied it so I reached out and grabbed it off the road. It looked like it had been run over.

He was able to recover the hard drive, but that's it, and I consider him fortunate in that regard.

He spends $2000 on laptops, and I keep telling him, cap it at like $500-$700, and get a nice computer at home. Stuff happens to laptops.

I spent $4500 on one way back when IBM still made thinkpads, and it was their bleeding edge at the time. I used it as a dev machine.

I got out of a cab and it flew out of my (for some reason unzipped) bag and crashed onto the pavement smashing the backlights and the hard drive. This is after it had been stolen and recovered mind you.

Never again.

Don't let your relatives do this. It can only end in tears.
