Ebay absurdities

eBay.au: Acer Laptop (item 280010649916 end time 30-Jul-06 10:04:52 AEST):
Oh, and while I'm on a "mock ebay" thing, I just love this bit: "The computer has only ever been used for word processing". That's got to make it worth waaaaay more than if it had been used for spreadsheets, or web browsing or, shudder, downloading mp3s.

Also, it was owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sundays. Honest.

You know gamers are much harder on their PCs. Lot's more violent keystrokes. Plus they are actually using the CPU and video.

Lorraine:
Yes, good idea.

Keith:
Not to mention the spilling of alcoholic beverages into the keyboard, thus rendering the computer both sentient and evil.

Generally speaking though, gamers are not using laptops. Or at least they didn't in my day. But then, we lived in a shoebox in the middle of the road...
