not a laptop, but something that will sit in an abandoned room and run headless? Dell only seems to sell laptops. Is buying an old Dell on ebay feasible?

from here:

But in the end, you really can't argue with the success of a book/movie series that has so perfectly played into the cultural zeitgeist. "Twilight" plays into the zeitgeist of teen girls who feel less threatened by the sexuality of men when these men wear more makeup than them and have hotter hair. "Twilight" plays into the aforementioned sociopathic narcissism of the teen girl who secretly feels she's too good for her nerdy friends and would betray them in a second to hang out with the cheerleaders and the jocks.

Once a month our office does a 1600m time trial for the fun of it. Basically we do four laps and time ourselves. Someone always brings a camera so there are plenty of happy snaps and we now have pics of the mad mile all around the office. My time this go round was 6:16. Previous times have been, 7:08, 6:25 and now 6:16. Improvement.

 Amusing but true in my anecdotal experience, and one I am guilty of;

One particular pitfall of open source projects is that, if you don't manage the project carefully, you can tend to attract developers who are more interested in discussion than writing code
