Amazing thing is, the only mark I can see is a slight nick on the corner, but it's that small, it may have been there a while and I've just not noticed it, considering it's plastic, it's still very well built. Lol.

Re: Tab Survived 13 foot drop!
Blimey! I must be lucky as it's no where near as bad as that! I'll post a pic in a mo...

Edit: It's more of a graze than anything else.

2 options... Or you are darn lucky, or i must be an unlucky person in technology... Broke my laptop, pc, and mobile in 2 weeks (hardware issues) and accidently dropped my tablet and had a pretty hard nick in it... but that's already a while ago

Re: Tab Survived 13 foot drop!
Mine dropped from 3foot up, needless to say it shattered the digitiser. Though, it did me a favour as now I have an all white tab rather then white back black front... Horrible design...

Wow. It feels really flimsy in my hands.
Like I could just snap it in half no problem.

Mine survived an 8 foot drop directly on the corner, and just has a small white scratch. This is just about the toughest non-rugged tablet out.

Anyway, it may be a little shock resistant, but it's NOT waterproof in any way lol, my first tablet Didn't survive Pukkelpop 2011 (if you don't know what happened on this festival, youtube it) the tab was lying in my tent and became a little moist, not really wet... Mother nature decided to kill it anyway but i went back to the store and told them what exactly happend and they gave me a replacement...months later... after a horrible story
