      Make, Model of Ancient Laptop Discovered

      In a pioneering study, a team of art historians, archaeologists, and philologists has determined the technical specs of this ancient laptop, an object that has long eluded analysis. The primitive ancient device, it was announced via PDF attachment emailed from aol.com, most closely resembles a Gateway Handbook 486 with a 80 megabyte hard drive. The side ports are probably USB -2.0 and/or an ingenious hard-drive cooling system employing flowing water.

      Experts could only speculate as to the operating system and UI of the millennia-old apparatus. Some postulated a primitive round button that the ancient user would press to toggle between applications.

      Tools used in the study included looking, close looking while drinking beer, and super super close looking.
