Laptop melts, for once it wasn’t the battery

Here’s a funny – it happened a while back, but I was sent a link to this story today. The author kept her laptop in the oven when she wasn’t at home, since it was a high-crime area and it seemed a non-obvious place for a laptop to live…

Postmeltdown2_1Then one day she came home and her partner was cooking french fries… and presumably hadn’t looked in the oven before switching it on 🙂

I suppose it makes a change that the laptop was melted by external factors, rather than the battery causing some internal pyrotechnics.

Even more amazing: the thing booted up and worked just fine!
