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.
