MacDailyNews Take: We only advise throwing Dells and other Windows PCs out of windows in cases where you are 100% sure that nobody will be hurt (as always, send your videos to ). As Dam Enkhbayar is from Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia, where the population nearly 1 million, the old “out the window with that Dell” might not have been the greatest idea. That said, we are intimately familiar with how Windows frustration can drive people at least temporarily insane.
