COMPUTE, IF YOU DARE

Maybe “notebook” isn’t the right term for a hefty computer like this HP seventeen-inch PC. A “notebook” is a pocket-sized pad of ideas. This is more like a lengthy tome of knowledge.

ATTENTION GIRLY MEN and girlier-than-average girls! Step away from this massive machine! Its hard drive is humungous! Its keyboard is colossal! And by “colossal,” we mean “the full, regular size!” (It’s even got a proper number pad!)

This is no namby-pamby netbook for willowy weaklings! It’s a big, bad, burly beast suitable for replacing your old desktop PC! ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH?

IF NOT, ARE YOU WOMAN ENOUGH?

IF NEITHER, IS IT THAT THIS HP DUAL CORE NOTEBOOK IS TOO MUCH COMPUTER FOR YOU, OR IS IT JUST OUR LIMITED VOCABULARY FOR GENDER IDENTITY? BECAUSE WE’RE WILLING TO PHRASE THE QUESTION IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

Will this heavy hunka computer fit in your sparkly clutch purse like an iPhone? No, it most certainly will not! Will its weight in your messenger bag put strain your feeble, underdeveloped shoulder? POSSIBLY! But whose fault is that? Do a push-up once in a while, why don’t you?

This is no micro-machine for lightweights! This is a full-duty, rough-and-ready, robust computator with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and an INSATIABLE APPETITE FOR ONES AND ZEROS!

What, you just want to browse the web and check email? Get a smartphone, you wimp! But if you’re tough enough to saddle up on a workhorse and ride—well, grab yourself one of these serious seventeen-inchers!

Just remember to lift with your legs!
