Default Microsoft’s new Surface is a very durable tablet

Microsoft’s upcoming Surface tablet is very durable. How durable, you ask? At a special Surface preview for two dozen journalists last week, Windows and Windows Live Division President Steven Sinfosky hopped on top of a Surface with four wheels attached and began riding it around like a skateboard. The device came away unscathed.

Now, the official Surface YouTube channel has posted a video of Panos Panay, the General Manager of the Surface team, dropping the device 30 inches onto the hardwood floor of the Surface Reliability Lab. The video shows the drop from the view of the Surface, which continued recording throughout the entire ordeal.

I for one, am excited to learn that Surface is not only beautiful, but quite durable too. The VaporMg casing lends it a large degree of protection, but I’d still be hesitant to test it myself. Would you?
