What you need to know
- A Microsoft Surface Book allegedly stopped a bullet that was shot through an apartment floor.
- An image shows what appears to be a bullet hole going through the trackpad and into the screen.
- Some question the legitimacy of the story.
The Surface Book 3 is Microsoft's thickest mobile Surface device. It's apparently so thick that it managed to stop a bullet. A viral tweet appeared on October 10, 2020 that appears to show a bullet hole going through a Surface Book. Twitter user Aaron shared the image, which garnered quite a bit of attention over the weekend. According to Aaron, the Surface Book "saved [his] life."
Aaron states that someone shot a bullet through an apartment floor and that the bullet was stopped by a Surface Book. The story seems hard to believe, but crazier things have happened.
Without seeing the apartment building in question and the exact scene of the incident, it's difficult to discern how feasible the story is.
Aaron also shared an image of a bed that was also allegedly affected by the gunshot.
Whether a Surface Book really stopped a bullet is uncertain, but we're fairly certain that a Chromebook couldn't block a bullet.
