Possible Damage Caused By Pressure on Laptops While Shipping?
I've been working on Macs for quite a while, but in this case I am seeking a greater level of empirical evidence.
I recently helped a client acquire some 15-odd MacBook Pros--all mid-2012 13" 2.5GHz machines, for a project. They then shipped them off without really discussing how they would go about it. They evidently stacked several machines on top of each other and strapped them very tightly together using something like a belt. Now they seem to be having some issues with a few of the machines functioning properly, though they were not entirely clear on the details of this.
Unfortunately, the client is feeling more inclined to blame me for the issues, though I'm liable to believe the manner in which he shipped them was a recipe for a disaster. I would personally /never/ ship them by tightly strapping them together--I usually pack them in foam-partitioned Benson Boxes.
I did mention this to the client, but he is stubbornly maintaining that the issues are not his fault.
I was hoping someone would be able to provide more detailed information if/how shipping MacBooks in such a way might damage them, along with any relevant cases.
Is this a good question?
