It was vacation time and the questions were:
why all components cost Extremely?
But if Santa didn’t buy ready-made presents
He makes them himself with the help of elves.
And this has never been a tiptoe holiday season!
(Winter only For miners and crypto.)
Many of Santa’s best respects
Finally Graphics card included.
so he ate fried chicken in gaming chair,
and everything is ready build in his lair.
Santa climbed the North Pole spire
And I said, “It’s time to get the components to people!”
Santa’s nice list was on my hard drive
That he hasn’t updated since 2005.
This caused unexpected frustration
When Santa played his favorite song, “Rhythm Nation”.
or Janet Jackson Hit Crashes PC
And Santa is back in reality.
he needs a new list and checks it all twice
With ultra-precise cutting-edge technology.
he made a pc with Intel’s 13th Generation Core
When Raizen 7000 Full of power.
Compatible with AMD and Nvidia GPUs
Inside a motherboard stacked with his toolkit.
But when I thought everything was stable,
santa melted 16 pin power cable.
But he didn’t have time for an RMA.
maybe he should just quit like EVGA.
It all seemed like a prank,
But then Santa UPS engulfed in smoke.
If this was a test of Santa’s resolve,
That was the problem he wanted to solve.
he plugged in all the rigs allowed by the outlet
But he also needed help from Cloud.
The Most Expensive Computing Money Can Buy
can Calculate pi with trillions of digits.
He also had his laptop hooked up to his hideout.
like the latest MacBook Air with M2.
Transfer of this data is not free.
but the North Pole had its own ISP.
Silicon combs everyone’s actions,
And everyone wants and everyone needs.
Who was naughty and who was kind,
It wasn’t concise with the big .csv.
“Computers saved me again,” thought Santa.
“From the destruction wrought by ‘Rhythm Nation'”
He put the data together on an SSD and
And for backup, he kept it in glass.
The need for some backups has never been clearer.
But now Santa could leave this in the rearview mirror.
He got ready by squeezing the suit over his stomach.
This was the one holiday he couldn’t Unlaunch.
No matter what you celebrate this year,
Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Christmas cheer.
Here at Tom’s Hardware, we wish you all the best…
We are on the bench and run the tests.
