Recently, my employer provided me with a shiny new laptop so that I can be more mobile and work from home. It's fantastic, dual cores, lots of rams, fast interwebs etc. a really nice piece of kit.
But... It has a sinister dark side; It’s a masochist!
Traditionally, computers don’t like to be dropped or beaten up; heck my first experience with a PC (a Viglen in 1986) required the user to run the “park” utility from DOS before you even moved it. My new laptop however is very different. It comes with a utility which shows how much of a beating it’s taking.
