Notebook Takes Bullet for Soldier in Iraq

From Mobile Magazine:

This is the kind of free publicity that advertising execs dream about. A Panasonic CF-M34 Toughbook lived up to its name when it took a bullet for the U.S. soldier who was carrying it in Iraq.

That soldier made a habit of carrying around his notebook as he carried out his duties for the 82nd Airborne Division. As most soldiers do at one time or another, he got too close to folks who had live ammunition and were not afraid to use it and found his body curiously unaffected by the bullet that had headed directly for him.

That bullet embedded itself in the Toughbook instead, sparing the soldier at the very least a serious injury. As you can see from the photo, this notebook is not long for the world. The soldiers, however, is.
