I have a computer that was subject to a power surge (lightning strike) in a storm a few years ago...

it still works perfectly fine. with a single exception, the USB controller is broken.

well mine i have a backup battery, with under and over voltage, the battery regulates it accordingly with a 75,000 dollar damage coverage. looks like this:

not the best picture but it runs really well, it will automatically turn off too if something too bad happens and the battery can't handle it. battery has never failed on me

EDIT: it's a cyberpower ^_^ kinda big and also heavy but worth it
