Samsung is showing off a netbook that is built to survive the rough and tumble of student life.
The Samsung NB30 is a standard Intel Atom netbook with a toughened, rubber-coated exterior.

Perhaps more impressively, the NB30 has an accelerometer built in. This, according to Samsung, senses when the laptop is falling, and automatically saves and boots down the hard disk when this happens.
As a consequence Samsung says that the NB30 will almost never lose data, even if the PC itself gets broken.
Naturally, Samsung wasn't keen on letting me chuck about one of its new products, so I can neither confirm nor deny if the system works: but it's a neat idea.
No word from Samsung on pricing or availability.
