Notebook/Laptop Technical Terms

Over the years I’ve heard (and in some cases coined) terms related to notebook (laptop) computers – and this is leaving aside the remembered description of one CIO’s secretary as “laptop”. The terms:

  • CrapTop – Laptop with a motherboard failure
  • FlatTop – Laptop with a flat battery
  • BlackTop – Laptop with a screen failure
  • LapDance – trying to use a modern laptop with its inherent heat issues actually on your lap

I am sure there are others, of course, and naturally, should I hear them I’ll add them to the list here.
