ASUS have a knack for hilarious Engrish taglines:

"Rock Solid. Heart Touching"
"In Search of Incredible"

I wonder if they'll ever find incredible.

HP actually has a HP 9000 computer. HPUX machines.
Not the HAL 9000.

But it is a UNIX computer and does not get virus. I think the HP Windows computers tend to crash and get viruses.
HAL 9000 was probably a UNIX based computer.

Check out this HPUX login screen with a image of Jupiter in the background.
