"A Laptop Like You (demo)" is a song on Jonathan Coulton's collection of miscellaneous tracks, Other Experiments.


"A Laptop Like You" was written in response to a request that Jonathan premiere a new song at his second appearance at the Pop Tech conference, in 2004.[1]

Live performance

As mentioned above, "A Laptop Like You" premiered at Jonathan's second appearance at the Pop Tech. It is believed to have never been performed at a Jonathan Coulton concert.


  • The attributes of the laptop described in the song could hint that Jonathan is singing about a Apple Macintosh laptop. Modern Mac operating systems are based on Unix and the keyboards on some early versions of Mac laptops did eligibly leave keyboard-shaped marks on the screen, etc.. (Jonathan uses a Mac laptop onstage when he plays his Zendrum.)



"A Laptop Like You" is available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of the Other Experiments collection. Of course, this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.

Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store


"Other Experiments" has not been made available in CD form.

Other versions

A karaoke version of "A Laptop Like You" is available on the Jonathan Coulton Karaoke Store.
