Why would someone tamper with a perfectly good door stop?

Yea I know. We took the kids to the(M.O.S.T) Museum of Science and Technology in Syracuse today and I was looking at a display called the progress of technology. There was a laptop about the size of a bread box that I know had to weigh 14 lbs and cost 3 grand. The I MAX theater was awesome by the way.

You could use it in your basement. Making the ladies do all of their internet stuff on it would be frustrating to the point of torture.
