It seems to me that parking the heads when extra accelleration is detected is a bit too late. Wouldn't it be better to park the heads if more than x seconds of near 0G occurs? The x corresponds to the amount time required for the laptop to fall a dangerous distance - about 0.3s for a 0.5m fall by my calculations; minus the time to park the heads (hopefully a lot less than 0.3 seconds).
