Do not push - Laptop HDD

Has anyone ever seen the little sticker on a laptop hard disk drive that says Do Not Push?

Guess why?

The platter is made of glass?!?!?! (I figured this out by being my normal "Do the opposite of what the sticker says" self)

Wanna see?

Oh, your HDD was probably newer, Mine was out of an old IBM one, The laptop was about 1 inch high with the lid closed.

And it didn't even have a battery!
what? so the manufacturer didn't even design it to be portable?

Well, It was an old laptop so they didn't have really small parts back then. Well, It is "portable" It just needs to be next to a powerpoint (It's still easier than carrying around a desktop..
cpu speed? maximum ram?
