In this news, we discuss the Surface laptop takes a bullet, man claims it saved his life.
Your laptop does a lot of things, from the workstation you’re productive at to watching Netflix movies and YouTube videos. But a laptop could save a man’s life, that’s something you would never expect from a laptop, right? Either way, a Microsoft Surface Book may have saved a man’s life from a bullet.
A Twitter The user @itsExtreme claimed his Microsoft Surface Book took the fall for him by taking a bullet and saving his life. He posted photos to show how the bullet destroyed the laptop’s screen and touchpad by shattering them into pieces. There is also what looks like a crushed bullet located next to the trackpad in the photo.
“My laptop literally saved my life… Someone shot through the floor of my building,” the man wrote on his Twitter profile as well as photo of damaged Surface laptop.
Aaron (his alias on Twitter) tagged Microsoft in its tweet to let the company know about the wonder its flagship-level laptop has managed to pull off. But the company did not respond. In addition, local authorities have not confirmed whether it was a bullet that managed to enter Aaron’s premises following a shot. This is why it will be better if you accept this statement with a little skepticism.
The tweet goes viral, drawing a horde of reactions and possible explanations for how venerable Nokia’s working phones would have handled this situation much better. Jokes aside, one possible explanation makes sense here. Referring to an iFixit article where the Surface Book teardown was mentioned, one user pointed out that the bullets were resisted by one of the two batteries inside. But the battery would have exploded in this case.
To justify this argument, it can be said that the battery could be inactive and beyond its lifecycle, which would also mean that the laptop is working while charging or is completely Kaput. Whatever the reason, this laptop has gone above and beyond in saving the user’s life in a way that even Microsoft never imagined.
