The International PC Gaming Association has decided to ban the Hewlett-Packard Blackbird from this year's International Gaming Tournament, which is to be held next month.  The IPCGA has issued a statement outlining the reasons for the Blackbird's ban.  These reasons include - the Blackbird's liquid cooling system requires practically no maintenance, giving it an unfair advantage over other liquid cooled systems that need periodic refilling.  Also, the six-way airflow system in the Blackbird's case has been deemed too effective - allowing for extended gaming sessions.  Lastly, the high-performance components that make the Blackbird so powerful are just too advanced for a normal gaming system to compete with.  Farad Soliploy, President of the IPCGA, remarked:  "The HP Blackbird 002 is just too bloody powerful. It creates unfair competition. Forget about a ‘one-arm-behind your back disadvantage,’ playing another machine against the Blackbird would be like playing without a head. It ain’t pretty."  more April Fools!!
