Revo-Round: Ming the Merciless is apparently selling computers.

The first thing I did when I read about the Revo-Round was go to The Onion, to see if Arrington and co were falling victim to a wonderfully produced piece of satire. Turns out that the story of the creation of a round, curved laptop meant to keep the Chinese from becoming round-eyes is true. Or at least it didn’t come from The Onion. And whether or not it’s true, a bunch of yokels in Silicon Valley have just invested $69 million in the thing.

If this is a joke, I’m not sure who’s springing it. The VCs? Some bored kids in China? If it’s not a joke, what the good christ is wrong with the people who are willing to fork over $69 for a laptop monitor that looks like it’s been projected onto a spoon? I’d say it’s insane, but I think that would be a compliment to people like Glenn Beck.

I can’t shake the feeling that Revo-Round’s initial corporate sponsor is Mongo, Inc.
