Default Re: what to do with this?

i already have my own laptop with average specs: celeronD, 512mb ram, 40gb hdd.

but as for being a torrent box, i think it requires more than this machine can offer. remember, this old laptop has a 4gb hdd.

also, i already have windows 98.

i've decided to just buy a network card and a mouse and/or keyboard so i can to some stuff on it. like surf the web, use ms office, play old sim city games. lol

take the processor out, and burn it, you will be suprised

or you can overclock it massively and then take off the heatsink and it will vaporize!!!!!

here is a video:

yeah but a processor wouldnt explode. It would just fry. theres other videos showing frying processors and they either melt or turn really black. and a cpu doesnt blow through the mobo and plywood. thats where they put the explosives/fireworks.
