Super Laptop Fighter

The laptop makes a horrible melee weapon, especially in a Street Fighter situation. A typical laptop won’t last beyond one or two hits. And although some can be quite heavy, their might is not enough to deliver a finishing blow. The laptop’s value as a weapon lies in the entertainment that spectators will get watching you pummel each other with the remnants of a busted laptop after the initial hit. At least, in theory. I’ve never tried this before. Or have I…

    Actually if you add two bungee cords they make better shields.Key boards are superior weapons cause the hard plastic and the cored allow you to use it like a mace.Not that this ever cross my mind.Nope never.

    A Panasonic Toughbook would make a formidable weapon, you can run over them with a Hummer and they’ll still work. And some models had pull-out handles, which would make them all the more formidable for melee.

    If you have time to plan ahead you can use the cord to electrocute your opponent, maybe even jerryrigging a portable stungun with the capacitors. But my first office weapon of choice is scissors, I know I know its the low tech option.

    wouldn’t a laptop make a better destruction tool if you closed it?

    @Anon.
    It is possible, that you could do more “damage” with the laptop closed, but open, you double your reach. ^^

    @Wayne, Ah! The Toughbook! I hadn’t thought of that. That could probably take a pounding.

    @DisposablePal, good catch! I try to sneak in fun little things every now and again.

    @Hamstadini, ah man, leave it to XKCD to take all the good, geeky, office work jokes. Ah well, at least mine has shiny boobage!
