I left my iPad on top of my car, it flew off at 40mph. I hit the brakes and it slid past me. I picked it up, ordered new glass and I am still using it today. I was amazed at how little was actually inside the unit and how much of a beating it could take. There really is nothing to break inside. I don't think the surface would have fared so well, judging from what I see in the picture.

My boss dropped his 2-day-old Surface on a carpeted floor from about 2 feet and the glass shattered. It's off for repair as I type.
