Over at GizmoSlip they were kind enough to test the durability of the Wii U GamePad.  If you were concerned about what kind of abuse the GamePad can take, let the GizmoSlip video below put all of your fears to rest!  They test out the Wii U GamePad at a height of 4 feet dropped directly onto concrete pavement 3 times!  I am sure that you will be amazed by the results.
