A few nice high laptop images I found:

Just to see what it looks like (it looks like this) I hooked up my Eee to one of my 17" monitors and cranked it up to 1024x768 - the highest resolution that it will do out of the box (you can hack your X settings to go higher). Looked nice - and different!

And this is my desk at work. Check the phone on the right =)

Die Kriegsmarine (Navy)

With a naval force small in numbers, but technically advanced, the German Naval High Command, in order to offset Allied Naval superiority, adopted a strategy designed to conceal as much as possible the location, intention and movement of its forces.

Forced by its nature to rely on radio communications, the German Navy issued to each vessel from battleship to harbor defense craft an ENIGMA cipher machine to ensure security. Here, as with other services, the dependence on ENIGMA for communications security proved to be disastrous.

ENIGMA remains the best known German cryptographic machine of World War II.

From Wikipedia - A four-rotor Enigma was introduced by the Navy for U-boat traffic on 1 February 1942, called M4 (the network was known as "Triton", or "Shark" to the Allies). The extra rotor was fitted in the same space by splitting the reflector into a combination of a thin reflector and a thin fourth rotor.
