    probably not the most asked hardware question..... but what would be a good way to "break" a laptop so i can take it back to Best Buy and get a new one? Kinda thinkin about tryin to break my Compaq 2140 and maybe get an iBook G4 (since my lappy right now only originally cost $1,099, otherwise i would probably go for a powerbook). any pointers? lol. read another thread where people said to put somewhat sticky tape over all the vents to try to drastically overheat the CPU to the point of breakage.

    I would make sure 100% that you could return it and that you would be able to exchange it for another product before trying to "break" it.
