ThinkPad Challenged with Large Magnet

#1 Post by Callahan » Sun Dec 22, 2019 10:54 am

I saw this large magnet test on Youtube ... had no idea it was a ThinkPad T61 till watching the video. I guess he had already done this with a desk top, which I have not seen. So I post it here since it's a TP ... which he says is falling apart.

Well, that was pretty fun to watch. Thanks for sharing. I wonder how the newest ThinkPads would perform.

I could do the same thing with my FDD / tape bulk eraser.

I'm surprised that only the HDD was trashed.

I don't know what ticked me off more - a video of deliberate destruction (which at least attempts to be educational) or the idiotic Vista comments from the brain-dead users. Nope, I guess it was the morons who upvoted those comments.
