Word:

Get a real computer!

(jargon)Get a real computer! - 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.
