I work with LN2 every day. LN2 =~ -196C. The Dewar flask he had was probably ~10L. When he poured the contents into that stupid (non vacuumed) box, by the time he returned it would have almost totally evaporated. The only reason the laptop shattered was the force it was thrown.
On another note, I have frozen a bananna (about 5min submersed) and then used it to hammer a 6" nail into a plank of wood. Pingpong balls and tennis balls are equally entertaining.

my arse that's real... no person would allow their laptop to be destroyed, even in a cool way like that!
And I`m surprised about the PSP surviving liquid nitrogen comment... Granted, there`s superconductivity at low temperatures (meaning it MAY work even better) but as the PSP thawed, I be there was a LOT of condensation - almost like dunking it in water
