"Strike Zone" Printed On Laptop
My Dell 1501 laptop has "Strike Zone" printed on it's underside. Does anyone know what this means?
Is it where I clobber the damn thing when it crashes? What a great idea!

reality of life on the go

Yep, it's a hard drive shock absorber. I think this is the related Dell patent, if you're interested.
