When customers call and ask how protective the Brain Cell is, I tell them the terrifying experiences that other customers have shared with us. In one incident, a laptop inside a Brain Cell flew out of a car going 25 MPH.
The extent of my experience of my Brain Cell (in Crimson) protecting my 15″ Powerbook was limited to bumping the case against a wall.
That was, until a few nights ago, when attempting to carry my LUX, two bags of groceries, my Brain Cell, with keys in one hand, in the rain (it’s been raining for 28 straight days here), I dropped the my Brain Cell on the sidewalk. In the horror of the moment, it didn’t seem like it actually even just dropped, but propelled itself with determination towards the hard, wet concrete.
As soon as that happened, everything else — the groceries, my LUX — was dropped to the ground and I picked up the Brain Cell, went inside my house, and opened it to survey what damage there might be. Aside from some easily wiped-off dust and particles of other stuff that had been hiding in the keyboard that ended up on my screen (I forgot to put my Laptop Keyboard Cover on), my Powerbook was fine. Not one dent, scratch or rain drop.
Now I can give customers my personal experience with dropping my laptop while it was inside the Brain Cell. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the Brain Cell (or the Monolith, its vertical version) will protect everyones laptop in every situation. But it gives me peace of mind when I take my laptop to work and back, on the ferry, bus, or a plane, or anywhere I go.
