When Phoronix spends a day in the snow sledding on the Otterbox 7030, and the ThinkPad R52 that was inside it, and the thing still works in the evening, you know they've got a good product.  Head on over to watch the videos of this protective case in action, and some of you can marvel at the ground being covered in the white stuff.

"Leading up to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) last month in Las Vegas, we received many invitations to check out

various booths, receptions, other displays, and even a Gulfstream G5 flight out to the San Fernando Valley. One of the

booth invitations we received was from a company known as OtterBox. Their booth had consisted of various protective cases

for PDAs, iPods, phones, and GPS devices. We had initially written off Otterbox as a company of little interest to our

Linux readers seeing as they just manufactured cases for consumer electronic devices. However, that was before we had

noticed the OtterBox 7030. The OtterBox 7030 is a notebook case that is not only waterproof but also crushproof, can even

be dropped up to a meter with your notebook inside, and of course is engineered to prevent any damage to the laptop

itself. Keeping in mind we are the ones that boil USB flash drives and use motherboards to open beer bottles, we have our

hands today on the OtterBox 7030. Is this polypropylene chassis able to protect a notebook inside when it's being used as

a winter sled?"
