    He wanted it to use as a head cover. A 10 year old binder can do that.

    I admit, I chuckled.

    Something about him going "I'm homeless so I don't really have a lot of experience with computers" then 30 seconds later talking about second rate circuit boards and "THIS VIRUS PROTECTION SUCKS!" made me laugh.

    I usually do my best to avoid fanboy-ism, but that's funny. I usually try to defend windows when my mac-using buddies start in, but I used my mom's HP Pavilion laptop this past weekend, and ugh... the trackpad is so small and made of weird sticky plastic, totally glitchy, the screen is so dark, and the thing is so friggin' heavy! yuckers.

    OHHH noes!!!! what will MS do now, their campaign is under attack by someone else other than Apple.... :rolleyes:



    ... joking aside, its pretty funny to see MS's campaign be bashed by people. I mean, its not even Apple counter attacking the ad, and still it made me feel those 3 ads from MS are now useless to convince people... but that is IMO

    My neighbors heard me laugh at that.

    Nicely done.

    And not just any cover. A nice PC box cover. :)
