He Was Internet Before Internet Was Cool

Today, we salute a great man. A man who called himself “Black Bart The Po8” when 1337 was just a street address.

That’s right, internet friends. July 26th, 1878, was the day that Charles Boles, a.k.a. “Black Bart the Po8”, stole a safe box from a stagecoach and left a poem in its place, the sort of taunting gesture that the Internet adores. So, in his memory, we offer the HP AMD Athlon II X4 Desktop Computer. It may not be top of the line, but like “Black Bart”, it’ll get the job done.

Of course it’s all conjecture, since “Black Bart” died in 1883, but we like to think he would have enjoyed the HP AMD Athlon II X4 Desktop Computer for its 6 GB of DDR3 RAM and the 1 TB of hard drive space. Probably he would have been impressed with the DVI port, and found the 15-in-1 memory card reader to be very helpful when planning his adventures. Plus the low low price would have cut down on overhead, and that would have let “Black Bart” spend more money on whiskey and women of ill-repute! And let’s not forget, he would have needed a monitor too.

Fake name? Check. Arrogant taunting? Check. Unorthodox spelling? Check. Illegal actions on a wild frontier? Check. Let’s face it, this guy was ahead of his time. Today, we remember you, “Black Bart”. We’re sorry you were about a hundred and twenty years ahead of your time. But even still, we dedicate the HP AMD Athlon II X4 Desktop Computer to you. Because we think you would have been right at home on the Internet of today. Although somebody would have given you crap about that mustache, probably.
