My computer shoots .357 mag rounds and uses a knife as a stylus.

In 1992 this was a super computer.

It as super relocating abilities, like crashing all the chrome modules while loading a Steam game.

I drop it once a month, just so it knows who's boss. Dropped it last week on tile while it was running.

How is it possible? Magic? What's going on here...


It was SSD the whole time! What a twist
