    This is not surprising at all, most laptops have a metal frame which is the shortest path to ground.
    Even without such a frame FCC shielding (nowadays just a sputtered layer of aluminum inside the plastic bits) would perform the same function. Even a properly designed naked laptop motherboard, (i.e. with good ground-plane and traces around the edge), would quite possibly survive.

    Now if you bump up the amperage enough to start blowing holes in the metal bits described above *then* we can be impressed by survival, but in the meantime there’s nothing to see here, move along…
