Remember when case maker G-Form recently threw a 12 lb. bowling ball at the iPad which was protected with their extreme sleeve? Yeah, these are the same guys that dropped an iPad from 500 feet just to show off how sturdy their custom-built protective sleeves and cases are. Well, they’re back at it with a new stunt involving a MacBook Pro. The video, which stars Tom Cafaro, shows off the the MacBook Pro G-Form Extreme Sleeve for Laptops, which is available in 11, 13 and 15-inch varieties.

And what better way to demonstrate than dropping a 13-inch notebook off a balcony, from a considerable height. The computer landed flat and survived, thanks to Poron Xrd, a marketing name for a custom material used inside the sleeve’s outer shell that absorbs the force upon impact. The MacBook Pro G-Form Extreme Sleeve for Laptops is available in black and yellow. It will set you back $69.95 for the 11-inch model or ten bucks more for both 13- and 15-inch models.
