I recently got a mail from a customer saying that something went wrong on his "ape computer".
As a non-native english speaker, I know that the verb "to ape" exists with the meaning of "to mimic". I also know that this customer use some testing computers before going on production ones.
Is it correct/common to use the word "ape" as an adjective to describe a object very similar to another one (even in slang)? I didn't find examples nor usages in dictionaries.
(EDIT: It might also be just a typo on his part, as he sent the mail from his smartphone)
