Burnt iMac keeps on chugging along.

If you’re not sure what the benefits are of an aluminum design, just ask the owners of this fine looking iMac. Burnt to a crisp, and melted all over the place, the machine still managed to boot up without any major hitches. It may be a little difficult to input a password with that keyboard, but as you can see from the screen shot, the operating system booted up just fine.  Talk about a well built case.  Anders Norman from Sweden found himself amidst a major house fire, and probably didn’t expect to find anything still in working condition.  I’ve often wondered what I’d save first: My Macbook Pro and Cinema Display or people and sentimental belongings.  I guess you don’t really know until you’re in the moment, but after seeing this, the people and belongings have a slightly better chance of being rescued by yours truly.

Who needs a fire proof safe when you have an aluminum iMac?
