A computer that high-fives you.

A computer with a peripheral shaped like an arm, which gives you a high-five at appropriate times-- i.e. "Are you sure you'd like to delete this file?" (Yes, OK!) "File deleted successfully!! HIGH-FIVE!!!"

       Sorry, but I can just imagine somebody reprogramming this to not high-five, but slap somebody at appropriate points.   

       Eg:
"Are you sure you want to delete that file?" (No, no way!) "File not deleted. You bastard, you're wasting all my memory" *Slap*.

Is this a thinly veiled rant?

       If you are confronted with a YES/NO prompt and you really aren't sure then you could arm wrestle it to settle the decision.

       does it lick it's palms first?

       It's official. Computers need a hand.

       This is a fantastic idea - couldn't the arm be modified to wipe the monitor clean every few days, with the help of some cleaning fluid stored in the hand?

       I'll take the High Five Computer 2.0: Top Gun High Five Edition.

       Is that the one that prefers computers of it's own make but won't admit it and indulges in a lot of macho hi-fiving instead?

       That's right. And every one in two CDs gets mangled when you press eject...

       I award one hundred points to Jinbish, for making me laugh on a Monday morning.

       With two arms, it could do more dance-like moves, and even 'raise the roof' to your favorite songs.   

       Could also clap for you when you do something good.

       No compilation errors. High five!
