8:26 /

Molly Wood drops, freezes, soaks, and drives away without the new MacBook Air in Always On's most extreme torture test yet.

-- -- today we're gonna be -- testing the eleven inch MacBook Air this is obviously the portable version the one that's meant to be tossed into a bag taken through the airport. And the one that's most likely to suffer some unfortunate accidents. Day. -- -- -- -- -- In the freezer. I shouldn't be -- -- others. These tests. So it is nice to know where. Crawl look at that. I'm also did so called that I can barely touch it. -- It's pretty -- night. -- -- From happening so far we've pretty sad if they told us killed. Right well. Great now it doesn't come on we're gonna let it fall off. Literally software out around 130 minutes or so -- think we're good. I'm ready to call it. -- Okay it's back. And it's -- and. That was -- -- But it passed the called -- Ago. -- -- -- Take it out. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Super -- left. I wanna -- your -- -- Let's see. -- there. -- -- -- -- -- -- We can tell its distressed because it's not. Does come and -- on -- get -- excellent health. Think at some point I'm definitely shut itself off to protect its -- but. Despite still being very -- to the touch. That's at least -- It actually -- A little burned and the -- just kicked -- on. But other than -- I think we have a winner. Worked in a way and may be like a beach. -- -- -- I don't know what you are so worried about to find. -- and coffee on it. Actually check ever. Scratches. Plus. Notes. For a couple little things here but nothing serious. Three TU one well I don't. -- -- -- -- we definitely have bandage -- actually. A full on events here. The screen. -- then they closed credit policies of the let's see really the important thing is. That it still comes alive and well -- MacBook Air to drop tests and around. Not a problem. Other than the -- RA several of you sent me notes on Twitter and said this has happened to you I've put stuff in the -- about my computer right here. I'm gonna do is gonna get my car -- sport mode and punch it let's see what happens. -- Underwear without my laptop. Well we have a couple -- chips add to it -- move. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Roughed up here. He's done a number understand -- it -- find out. -- Can we -- it. No it's bloom. It's time now. -- this thing is now. I don't think it looks kind of -- us. So -- setting up for our water tests and I've been assessing the damage a little bit tarmac. Which I think might make a lot of tests may be even more unfair because there's a lot more places for the water to get and then there used to be you can see that. The lid has bent a little bit so it doesn't close quite as tightly you can also see. So at the bottom panel. Has come pretty lyrics so it might be letting in a little more water there -- chips following a -- -- there's definitely. The most damage that we have ever caused -- gadget but it's still functioning fine which I think is pretty impressive. And 32. I know the first thing to do and still turn your laptop -- you obviously take -- out of the water. -- your screen is still on some precedent. Now if you have a laptop you can take apart you should immediately remove the battery to get anything you want to do is turn it off. Looks like it take care that -- -- it. You want to make sure you unplug it anything that can sort of caused circus. To try to connect American short circuit the device. -- -- it will kill it in the hands and you wanna hang upside down so water drips out of the keyboard for. Right there is still water dripping out of the things I do not want to try to turn it back on because that could send it to its final resting place. We're gonna go ahead let it dry out for a couple of days and we will find out whether it survived or not. It's kind of Sam cross my fingers -- as little things went pretty -- so far. Right so we let the MacBook Air dry out. For two or three days and when we plug it in look at this comes and I wanted to say that it had survived our final water tests but unfortunately. Look what happens when -- unplug it. And will not come on and lessons plugged in and I'm sorry to say that although this thing put up a true ninja battle. The MacBook Air has failed the water test.
