    Default New Laptop unvieled

    I have no particular use for Mac computers, never been much of a fan. Don't get me wrong, i love my ipod shuffle, and the wife hasn't seen her ipod touch since I got her an ipad (it's been with me 24/7).

    but this... this would totally get me to switch over!

    I'm trying to decide wether it's more Lovecraftian, or Cronenbergian

    Ok, I'm not an Apple follower or a reader of the Onion so I just find this hard to believe. If it's not an outright joke it sounds like a publicity stunt.

    The Onion is a satire newspaper. Everything they publish is a joke.

    No wonder I don't read it. I can't even keep up with things I care about

    Looks like it belongs in a Harry Potter movie...

    Looks like a simple case mod. Gimme one of those steampunk case mods anyday.
