Toshiba Field Tests Include Gross Dog Drool

Toshiba just launched some pretty funny “field tests” on YouTube, including the cringe-inducing “Portege Ultrabook vs. Drooling Dog” featured above, in a series called “Field Testing with Matt & Jamie.”

In each of the videos, they mention a field test performed by Toshiba (for the dog drool one it’s a test to withstand 50ml of water), before Matt and Jamie perform their own, less scientific, more riduclous test, which Toshiba claims the products actually passed. Apparently, in another clip to be added later this week, the Toshiba product actually failed the test, which is refreshing to see from a company (and lends more credibility to the results of the other tests). Aside from the hard to watch “”Portege Ultrabook vs. Drooling Dog,” highlights from the (seemingly neverending) series include “Satellite Ultrabook vs. Paint Shaker”and “Encore Tablet vs. Block of Ice.” Stick around for these two after the jump.
