Yesterday, my Surface 3 was sitting on my desk, plugged in for charging and quietly minding its own business. Our dog Watson decided to walk past and got his leg caught in the cable. He carried on walking and pulled the Surface 3 off the desk and on to the tiled floor. I saw it happen, but was unable to catch it in time. All I could do was to utter a very loud expletive.
The Surface 3 landed on the point of one corner. I picked it up in dread, fearing that, at the very least, the screen would have cracked. To my surprise, the screen was intact, and the machine still working. The only evidence of the fall is the slight dent on the corner.
It’s tougher than I thought.
