Resting Position

For me, this HP desktop actually works as a laptop. But then again, I have a really strong lap.

My lap can crush cans. My lap can deflect bullets. Are you having trouble with a jar? I’m sure I could open it using my thigh muscles. And if the lid won’t budge, I could just shatter it and not feel a thing.

That’s why I can’t use traditional laptops. They just don’t have enough heft. I set one on my lap, and it feels like there’s nothing there at all. Then, I forget about it, go to get up, feel something sliding off my lap, and assume someone is attacking my midsection (happens more than you’d think). Before I even have a chance to consider the situation, the muscles down there have already gone about neutralizing “the intruder.”

As you might imagine, these damages aren’t covered by a warranty.

So, I’m forced to use this HP Pavilion H8 Hexa-Core Desktop PC as a laptop. No, it is not as mobile as a traditional laptop computer (I need to keep it plugged in at all times), but that’s the price I pay for having a lap that can subdue an alligator (this is not hypothetical, mind you). And besides, it’s got everything I need: 10GB RAM, a 1.5TB hard drive, Beats Audio, Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium, and most importantly, enough weight so that I never forget it’s there.

Now, a lot of people have asked me, why not just use it on a desk? I can understand that this is an innocent question, asked without any ill will at all. But the truth is, if you had a lap like mine, you’d realize how insulting it was.
