We get quite the view of the inside of the laptop.

There are certainly easier and more practical ways to dispose of your old laptop, but they’re probably not as fun or educational as sawing it in half with a waterjet.

The YouTube channel Cut In Half cuts things in half—as promised—while offering us an inside look at some of the products in our everyday lives. This time around, it’s set its sights on slicing open a Toshiba laptop from approximately 2007 with an Omax waterjet, which it accomplishes in no time.

We still don't know how everything inside the laptop works, but it looks cool as hell, which is sometimes a good enough reason for doing that in the first place.
Watch a real-life fruit ninja expertly slice through a mountain of lemons
If you've ever owned a smartphone or tablet, there's a good chance you've played Fruit Ninja, a 2010 game that lets users play as a ninja out on a quest for blood—well, juice—against pretty much any kind of fruit. Even bananas. (The backstory is sparse, but it's implied that a roving cornucopia killed his entire family.) The ninja you play as is so skilled that merely touching a piece of fruit on the screen would have him expertly slice it in half with a samurai sword.
