    The yellow think beneath laptop is a sponge that presumably lowers the vibration to some point and it not let the laptop slide (glued in laptop). I have it for 1 year now as mp3 player and never had a problem, eventhough I believe we have the worst roads in Europe

    If you have more info at what angle is the best for hdd to survive the vibrations, i would be glad to know it.

    well its never been tested - but - you can see here why
    I said that - made a pic up for my website - using MS paint brush

    The theory is that a hard drive mounted normally might be killed
    in a car because a bump would cause the arm to crash into the
    spinning disk - but not on its side

    - it dont mater what side as long as its on its side ,I just drew it that way
    - but like I said there is no die hard proof that I know of
