Though the PC vs Mac debate is about as tired as the ‘Glock vs 1911' one, there are many loyal followers out there. Our staff members and contributors use a whole gamut of electronic products. We're pretty sure Reeder still uses a Commodore 64, and completely confident no one should ever look at Kuo's browser history. BulletSafe, manufacturer of armored vestshas a Youtube channel where they test the, uh… bulletproofness of all sorts of products. The latest is, you guessed it, MacBooks. Four of them.

How Bulletproof are MacBooks?

Can MacBooks stop a .50 Cal Desert Eagle bullet? Find out in this episode of How Bulletproof where we shoot 4 macbooks to see if they can combine to stop the same bullet that a BulletSafe Bulletproof Vest can.
