Old Dell screens - bulletproof?

I have an old Dell computer in the garage - must be at least 9 years old but it chunders on and can still (just about) run iPlayer/4OD etc which I use when I am out there.

The garage is also my workshop and shooting gallery ( I have a collection of vintage/modern air guns which I play with).

So - I had a ricochet today which cracked the screen at 1/3 down on the right edge - see pics - its that black blob..

I thought it would have taken out the whole screen but apparently not. It has affected the whole right hand side plus the top left - but it still works.

I am quite impressed.
