Ancient laptop

This early laptop weighed 24.5 pounds — and was, from the look of it, just as likely to induce carpal tunnel syndrome as the computers of today. (Via Boing Boing.)

I’d lug a 24-pound machine around with me if it were a repetitive stress-busting gizmo like this (although I’d like it in pink, please).

My wrists are keeping me up at night. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I jam them against my jaw like a fetus as I sleep.
