In one of my modules the lecturer ask people who had laptops to bring them in to the class so we could all work on a mathematica model. So today I like all my fellow students (10) bring their laptops in. We are all sitting there with them out when the Head Of the department walks in, he is the lecturer. He then says rather glibly. "So someones got a pretty laptop then" looking at me with the rest of the class snickering. To which I reply "Why thank you" Someone chirped up. "Well we all know it isn't about looks it is about power" Again they laughed. By which time I was getting a little annoyed. I then asked the specs of everyones laptops, the best was a core 2 duo at 1.8Ghz. Which they seemed mighty proud, so when I said I had 2.2Ghz they looked very shocked. Trying very hard to find a downfall someone remarked that even though it is faster the OS isn't as good so it would be slower. It finally came to a head by me having to connect my laptop to the projector to do the modeling on. I plugged it an the lecturer wanted a quick play, he then activated spaces by a hot corner. To which he found this. I then spent the rest of the lecture doing the modeling and flipping between spaces and using expose. They literally couldn't keep up, by the end no one was mocking me. It even got praise,"your laptop is quite posh" but from someone from Barnsley I suppose that isn't much of a compliment. After all they think I have a posh accent. 1.5 days with this little thing and I love it.
