eight lap tops cheap – $1

i have five lap top computers for sale they are Dual cores and work great they just need hard drives and power cords asking $ 20.00 each or $ 15.00 each if you buy two or more $ 100.00 for all eight these are great to put Linux or windows on

Time to fire up the catulator! (Which, don’t forget, you can get on a mousepad!)

Eight laptops times five laptops times two cores minus no hard drives plus power cords modulo $20 each to the power $15 each in base eight is…

*hits catulator*

Oh dear – I get “Sprunkle.”

Thanks for the post, Lace!

    These are great to put random-number generators on.

    Cat math word problems are hard enough, and then Sparky wants to make us play Pin the Punctuation on the Post. Forget it. I’ll just leave these here and you guys figure out where they go: ,,,!!,!.?#;,% £!.

    Hey, I think these are the kind where the screen detaches from the keyboard. Watch!

    *rip, tear, sproingggg*

    Oops. I’ll just leave this here. Not the one I wanted, anyway.

    Hammy, you must be developing calluses from all this Punchity Punch Punching. At least the bleeding stops relatively soon.

    Happy Talk Like a Computer Day! (Which I just made up.)

    *awakens catulator, a/k/a Bugsy, the Insane or Capt. Grumpypants, and ducks a paw swipe*

    Okay, that’s two cores times eight processors plus one Linux chasing a hard drive.

    *attempts placating catulator with ear skritches and gets semi-conciliatory purring*

    The answer is – purple because aliens don’t eat pancakes.

    Yep, that sounds about right.

      My catulator refused to even respond after noting these laptops don’t have mice.

    Sorry Sparky, I need more info, particularly whether these have enough memory/video memory to run any Windows version after XP.

    O’er the RAM parts we watched….

    Hey, I seem to remember that Sparky was trying to flog these off on eBay as well. And, in both instances he (presumably) failed a basic IT nerd/wonk detail of giving the brand/model of the things.

    Those two IBM ThinkPads for instance use a different size of hard drive than that ASUS at the left. Details matter. Anyone who makes a habit/hobby of restoring older hardware quickly learns that not all computer “stuff” is “one size fits all.”

    As the Farce is high with this ad, I have to wonder if Spark’ here is some sort of fence. Which would explain the math problems. Also, why no hard drives are present, too (“Evidence, what evidence?”).

    I bet I would have better luck perusing craigslist using a box of corn flakes.

    When I used my handy lap top catulator to make sense of this, the only response I got was a claw in the leg when I tried to get up.
