This list of 10 top laptop deaths is compiled by Complete Computer Cover, which modestly describes itself as the UKs leading laptop insurer. The company analysed its claims data over the last five year, after staff ran up an unofficial league table of the weirdest or most interesting causes of laptop destruction. Here are the results:
1. Dropped off a bridge into a river
The most disastrous demise was deemed to be the claim of a Yorkshire university student who provided a highly-detailed diagram showing how he
had dropped his laptop off a bridge 20ft down into a river after being pushed from behind by a friend.
2. Dropped iron on screen
Second spot in the computer catastrophe chart went to the schoolchild whose mum managed to smash the laptops screen by dropping an iron on it.
