Notebook Computer—Literally

Notebook Computer—Literally

We're not sure where the term "Notebook Computer" originated, mostly because it's not on Wikipedia yet. But if Urban Dictionary is to be a legitimate source of knowledge, then "Notebook is the term you use to refer to a LAPTOP computer if you are: A 9 year old girl that likes Bratz dolls, A fucking tool of Dell & Microsoft, or a n00b." The brilliant word smith that created this entry also adds that "It's a stupid nickname created by retards who decided to major in marketing during college becuase [sic] they wanted to spend the majority of their time getting wasted."
Maybe Dutch artist Evelien Lohbeck created this pseudo-sarcastic animation of a real notebook computer because she read the entry and agrees with this master of language...

This YouTube clip spotted at Ebaum's World shows paper-and-pen animator Evelien Lohbeck's notebook computer creation.

Taking the term literally, she opens up a bound paper sketchbook to a page that resembles a laptop computer with a keyboard on one side and a "screen" on the other. What follows is a clever little animation of Windows starting up, opening Google, and watching YouTube clips, on on "paper."

The irony is that this animation couldn't have been done without a real machine. Way to stick it to the man...
