After reading the price of these I ordered 7 of them for my fledgling business, in the year 2014. I bought them, and when the package arrived containing the laptops after I had them next-day aired to me (I couldn't help myself, I needed the power of the c2d), I made the mistake of unboxing them all and sitting all 7 in a row with the batteries all in. They powered on without me knowing, and immediately began building a digital world similar to Tron due to their immense power. While the electricity was arcing between them I marveled at the speed at which the world, displayed in stunning 9562 x 768 resolution across all 7 monitors, was being constructed.
I mean, let's do some quick math: Each laptop is dual core at 2.53 ghz with 4 gb ram. 7 laptops x 2 cores each = 14 cores. 14 cores x 2.53 gigahertzes = 35.42 cores rounded up to 36 cores. 36 cores x 4 gigabytes of RAM for each = 144 TOTAL CORES.
Only if you multiply it out this way do you really see how strong these laptops really are. Especially if they are all in the same place. The laptops started trying to pull me into the Tron world but I was able to escape because I was already wearing a hat constructed entirely of tinfoil, so my brain wasn't drawn in. I was in my basement and I fled instantly, locking every door behind me. This was 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't went down there. I have noticed that the supercomputer has put me in the positive in terms of power consumption: My electricity meter spins in reverse. Somehow they are generating power and feeding it back into my house. And I tripped the circuit breaker for the entire basement.
