Get a real computer!
<jargon> A typical hacker response to news that somebody is having
trouble getting work done on a toy system or bitty box.
The threshold for "real computer" rises with time. As of mid-1993 it meant
multi-tasking, with a hard disk, and an address space bigger than 16 megabytes.
At this time, according to GLS, computers with character-only displays were
verging on "unreal". In 2001, a real computer has a one gigahertz processor, 128
MB of RAM, 20 GB of hard disk, and runs Linux.
