    I met him at a student meet and greet this morning and asked him to sign my laptop, which he did.

    that's pretty funny... at least he wasn't a donkey and said "no, i can't sign that" because it was an apple product.
    Did he talk at all?

    Well now it means even more.

    The guy is crazy! Has anyone seen the vid where he skips about shouting "DEVELOPERS, DEVELOPERS, DEVELOPERS!".

    Cool thing to get. Maybe even valuble?

    Yeah, he was giving a talk about the future of technology and I was invited as a student to meet him before he went on stage. He was walking away and I said "Mr. Ballmer!.." He turned around and I asked, "Would you sign my laptop?" To which he laughed and shook his head. He signed it and said I was clever, which I'm adding to my resume that a billionaire thinks im clever, haha.

    Well there goes the resell value. I hope you held it while he signed it or it'll be all crusty with sweat:

    Ha! He asked if you needed a new one since he is used to the life expectancy of a PC.
