Their result for The What Computer Are You Test ...

The Laptop

You scored AVERAGE on Power and AVERAGE on Pretension!

Congratulations! You are the Laptop. Laptops (or "notebooks", as they are called by silly people) need no introduction. Their ubiquity is the stuff of legends, and just about every college campus in the world these days is filled with young students sitting in the shade and smiling radiantly while typing one-handed on their new Dell. Or perhaps that's just in the ad campaigns. While they will never be able to compete with the full-sizers, laptops have become a staple of our technological society. With laptops that now come with DVD burners and wi-fi receivers as standard issue, anyone can pull out their computer, connect to someone's internet, and show everyone their favorite YouTube videos. What a world we live in.


You scored average on power. Laptops are comparable to desktop computers in most regards, but miniaturizing something always means either less power or higher cost. Don't worry, though, I'm sure you're still a very nice person.


You also scored average on pretension, so it looks like you're right in the middle. Laptops are more than just a computer that sits in your room. You take them places, so they need to look good. The last thing you want is to be sitting on an airplane with your computer on your lap, only to have everyone looking at the abomination and shaking their heads. I speak from personal experience, here.
