Not only that, but did you know that a HUGE chunk of movie "costs" are to pay big-name actors? These celeb wages are just ridiculous, they could easily cut down a lot of costs by lowering their wages down to something reasonable, or using new actors that aren't as spoiled and greedy.

I got fed up with this region crap long ago. You would have thought now that there's no technical reason to do this, they would want to serve their customers in the best way they could. Of course not. That's why there's NO FUCKING WAY I'm getting a PAL anything anymore. Oh and since I'm venting, I might as well say; dear Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. FUCK YOU RIGHT IN THE EYE SOCKET WITH A BIG FAT RUBBER DICK!

To be honest, a fully functional 100 megahertz/ 16 megabyte machine today would be awesome. You don't really need a powerful machine for school-related work. Unless you're running intensive weather simulations or something. A 2009 laptop will work just as good in 2018, provided it doesn't break down.

However, it is true that you don't really need laptops for learning. Laptops are highly overrated for education in my opinion.

Too bad you get NO additional background pictures to choose from. You can of course use any picture you like, but by default, you have a choice between 1) the brown default picture or 2) solid brown. Would it really be so difficult to include maybe 5 different pictures?

The DSi is to DS what Gameboy Micro is to the GBA; no more backwards compatibility, but a better screen. Personally, I would rather go for the DS lite which has only a tiny bit worse screen than DSi but still really good, and would recommend the same to everyone.
