Hardly a laptop, that’s a clam shell desk top. You’d crush your bloody legs having that on your lap.


FjordExplorher t1_j9y61dm wrote

I don't know about that. My wife's 100+ pounds and I'm usually pretty happy if she's on my lap.


Fluffy-Wombat t1_j9yl66h wrote

She’s also got a great clam shell

She’s not as easy to turn on as my laptop though.

Yeah but she runs just as hot

I'm not an expert on women, but I don't think they're supposed to have shells.

kessa1111 t1_j9yi42q wrote

Saw the build video (I'm a fan), and they did indeed put that whole thing on Katelyn's legs and she was using it. Although it took two people to put it there and I'm guessing it wasn't for very long.

innkeeper_77 t1_j9z3enp wrote

It totally can if you are a giant…..

The project is ENTIRELY for being silly. Their criteria was that it needed to function as a laptop, with internal batteries and everything. Others have made larger “worlds largest laptops” but they weren’t internally powered, one massive one at a trade show even had a rear projection ROOM. (See hackadays recent article on this for that one) - this laptop is useless, the keyboard is even unusable big…. But it DOES all function so theoretically a giant could use it as a laptop.


BloomEPU t1_j9y8aax wrote

The people who made it tested it out in their youtube video, I think they had to wear some kind of leg padding.


Shanhaevel t1_ja2dmr7 wrote

My thoughts exactly. There is no point to this thing.


Suekru t1_ja2scq5 wrote

I mean. 100 pounds on your lap isn’t not that bad. People sit on each other all the time lol


DTFlash t1_j9yf35c wrote

Why are all the comments "Well that's not practical"? It's not supposed to be, it was made as a goof.


AkirIkasu t1_j9zcve8 wrote

You'd think the giant oversized novelty keyboard might have been a hint.

I'd make a comment about how they should have got it from how much Evan and Katelyn laugh in their video, but I would be even more amazed if they watched the video than if they read the article, which also makes it super clear that it's not made for the purposes of being practical.


MikeDubbz t1_ja33y0d wrote

Considering all the blank real estate on the base, for the sake of the goof, you'd think they'd have gone all out and make it a truly huge keyboard that fills up the entire base instead of just the relatively smaller portion that it does.


inconclusivereality t1_j9z0h7b wrote

I love Evan and Katelyn! They make things just for fun.

I just watched this a few days ago. Saw the title and wondered if it was them.

They're so creative and they have the DIY skills (and available tools!) to really make things work out that you'd think would totally fail (like this laptop). I love their channel!


Mitoria t1_j9ygr9o wrote

Idk why people aren't getting the comedy of this. Even and Kate are hilarious and I've watched a ton of their videos--this is meant to be silly and weird and not at all serious.

I'd have one, it fits in a car, protects the screen, and gives me my full environment anywhere

I can see the humor in it, but ain't no way I'm calling something that weighs 100lb portable or a laptop.

financialmisconduct t1_j9z024s wrote

It's a very minor edge-case, but it's certainly preferable to lugging my 60lb desktop + 40lb monitor, along with all the accessories, only to find out they don't have anywhere for me to setup when I get there

You realize this is the same people who made a mood-ring toilet seat, a velvet toilet seat, and also have a website they made with a sponsor with the domain

But it just comes off as wasteful and stupid. Where’s the funny part?


TheMace808 t1_j9zy7zl wrote

Oh shush worse stuff has been made or wasted for a joke. At least they’re spending their own money and could just take the parts out for something useful


Secure_SeaLab t1_ja1f4o2 wrote

Ok, I mean lots of people think stupidity is funny I guess. Seems like a waste at best.


TheMace808 t1_ja1fcg1 wrote

I mean yeah it’s funny because it’s absurd, they could probably just take the parts out and use it for something serious, not much of a wasye

Paymepoo t1_j9zocrw wrote

Today when I walked into my economics class I saw something I dread every time I close my eyes. Someone had brought their new gaming laptop to class. The Forklift he used to bring it was still running idle at the back. I started sweating as I sat down and gazed over at the 700lb beast that was his laptop. He had already reinforced his desk with steel support beams and was in the process of finding an outlet for a power cable thicker than Amy Schumer's thigh. I start shaking. I keep telling myself I'm going to be alright and that there's nothing to worry about. He somehow finds a fucking outlet. Tears are running down my cheeks as I send my last texts to my family saying I love them. The teacher starts the lecture, and the student turns his laptop on. The colored lights on his RGB Backlit keyboard flare to life like a nuclear flash, and a deep humming fills my ears and shakes my very soul. The entire city power grid goes dark. The classroom begins to shake as the massive fans begin to spin. In mere seconds my world has gone from vibrant life, to a dark, earth shattering void where my body is getting torn apart by the 150mph gale force winds and the 500 decibel groan of the cooling fans. As my body finally surrenders, I weep, as my school and my city go under. I fucking hate gaming laptops.

The twitch stream she’s watching is their own stream. They make silly projects like this just to see if they can. They stream on Twitch as well. I recommend checking them out at Evan and Katelyn on YouTube.

Ok, but I know a music producer that, on visits, drags his iMac Pro to and from his parents home in Maryland.

Gotta level up to that m2 chip. The upgraded air is more than powerful enough for music applications now.


monkeyman1947 t1_ja09lrv wrote

It’s not an issue of ‘power’. His iMax Pro has plenty of power to edit multiple streams of music. The issue is having a compatible monitor (to include a built in camera). I suspect a smaller M1 iMac would work as well but with a lot less viewing ‘real estate’.

Someone in the video, near the end when they're showing it off in public (I gues they were not really worried about someone grabbing it and running off with it...), says "whose laptop is that, André the Giant?!" which made me have to pause the video for a minute till I was done laughing.

Also makes me wonder for a moment the ratio of people who know him from his wrestling career vs his acting career.

100 pounds? I mean 50" tvs are relatively light these days, maybe 20 pounds? Even that sounds high. Meanwhile a typical laptop these days must weigh maybe 5 to 10 pounds. Where is all the extra weight coming from? Did they just load up the base with a bunch of extra weight so that it doesn't fall over when you pull up the screen?
