It's as much a hovercraft as a pancake is a waffle.

Halloween is approaching and it's time to dust off the nutcracker, but why not treat yourself to a new laptop as well?

Enter the Nutcracker Laptop. It's a laptop computer with reinforced hinges, and an extra knurled strip added along both edges, between the screen and the keyboard, that will grip the nuts and break them open when the lid is closed. Keyboard and screen are protected from nut debris by sliding covers, similar to that of a roll- top desk.

Perfect for annnoying/amazing/amusing commuters on the train first thing in the morning.

       Can it come with a long handle that plugs in? That way, you could have a USB sledgehammer as a backup.

       Bun for the reinforced hinges alone.

       For a minute I thought it was a theft prevention device (in which case how would it work again female laptop thieves?).

       Mine does that now.   

       Oh, wait - you mean tree nuts.

       After you crack the nuts there could be a gap between the screen and keyboard creating a nut roaster using the heat of the laptop. Chestnuts cracked and roasted PERIOD!   

       This would be a permanent holiday fixture, believe you me.

       Just a plot to make normal computers obsolete.
