I just ran across another story about HP durability.

Re:HP (Score:5, Interesting) by brarrr (99867) on Thursday January 25 2007, @08:14PM (#17761790) Journal My friend's father's HP48 was in a briefcase which was left behind during evacuation of the world trade center, somewhere around the 70th floor. 6 months after 9/11, FBI called him up (the evacuated father who made it out) and said "we need you to come down and identify a few items" briefcase made it through with lots of things trashed inside, mostly crushed... but the HP was still working just fine.

strong statement as to their durability.
