Charlie Brown Laptop: Why not?
by Mark R
If you’re like me, you grew up with Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the gang. You also may have found that you could relate to Charlie Brown, who seemed to fail at everything he did but was by no means a failure.
Fortunately you can grab yourself a special edition Peanuts/Charlie Brown laptop with some exclusive Peanuts cartoons right on the front. Well, maybe not exclusive, but just watch someone else have some just like them.
The computer has a 1.73 MHz processor, 1 GB of Ram, an 80 GB hard drive, CD burner, but if you’re a diehard Peanuts Fan, you’re not interested in that. You want the pre-packaged Peanuts screensavers, backgrounds and more.
I can’t imagine that if there were laptops in the Charlie Brown universe, Snoopy really needed one. I imagine he would continue to type unpublished manuscripts as he precariously balanced himself from atop his doghouse.
Perhaps Charlie Brown would have found some support and comfort from a chatroom. Hopefully he would not be looking on certain myspace sites to help cure is inner lonliness. I would be interested in seeing Linus and Lucy’s personal blogs.
But enough reminiscing. If you’re interested in this laptop, you can purchase it for about $2,800.
