My work-issued T420 is probably comparitively the worst laptop I've ever owned. And I've had 12 from 8 different manufacturers over 18 years.
I'm not sure if you're joking or not, but I'm pretty sure this is grounds for Slashdot account deletion.
WTF does this have to do with the article? Or do you just go around randomly posting this on most Tech articles? Or are you just an anti-apple troll?

Then this is clearly the wrong device for your needs, and it's not intended to be. The Surface RT would be a device aimed closer at you, though it'd be too expensive as well per your criteria.
...That's what I came here to say as well. It's competing against Ultrabooks, but it's unclear what its selling point would be for most purposes. Ostensibly a "Pro" user would want it for compatibility with legacy x86 desktop apps. But it's not clear that for MOST purposes like that a touchscreen (even with stylus) would ever be better than the hardware keyboard and pixel-accurate pointing devices that come with every ultrabook. There's not really a "pro" market for tablets at the moment, though I suppose that won't happen unless there's hardware for it.
Also: Wow, you guys are defensive.
I loved me some Who. Old Series and New Series. Watching "Rose" was an emotional experience for me. We had new Who and I LIKED him. I didn't think it would ever happen again.
But then the series turned out to be...I dunno...All...rushing about and syrupy hyperbole moments and characters I wanted to strangle and the Doctor became some sort of untouchable Demi-God and they almost never leave earth and Brittany Spears was there for some reason and incoherent or inconsistent stories and why aren't most of the monsters scary and why are they rushing to fit this story into a single episode and man that line made me wince and I'm getting motion-sick and sweetness-sick and...well, the stuff the article said.
It's not that I was comparing against the original series, which like other people have pointed out changed tremendously over its time and was awful in a lot of its own ways. But I just found myself not enjoying the new show. At all (well, a couple of episodes). I guess I blame the writing. I only stuck it out so long because I WANTED it to work. But it didn't, and there are complex reasons for that.
That's great that you DO enjoy the show. It really sucks that you're such an ass about it.
The author has, almost verbatim, described my thoughts about the new series. And why I just finally stopped watching it and moved on to other things.
Annnd, it's gone already. Or it's gone at the moment.
Not clear if the author took it down, if this is an automated reaction to problem reports on Tumblr, or if Tumblr itself took it down for Reasons.
Unfortunately, being unjust is not enough of a legal requirement to overturn a law. (And not only because the term "unjust" is subjective).
What you're saying does need to happen, but it's also extremely expensive and risky for individuals, and not nearly enough overall.
It only just now occurred to me that you're a troll. Good one, I fell for it.
Wow, what an unabashed jerk you are.
Of course I know how to pronounce it. It's just a silly spelling, which was my tongue-in-cheek point =)
Thinking of old first-person Id games, do you know what day the original Doom was released, off the top of your head, sonny? 'Cause I remember downloading a copy from the local BBS when it came out on 12/10/93. Did you ever purchase a copy of the original Hovertank 3d direct from Softdisk? Do you remember who was revealed to be the "real" villain of Doom II if you played a particular sound clip backwards and used noclip to find him? Do you remember word for word what the easter egg message said? Don't look it up.
As far as rockets go, how detailed was YOUR Saturn V model rocket with F-size motors?
I guess it's sort of like Megadeth's latest album, TH1RT3EN. I imagine that's pronounced th-one-rt-three-en.
Or the movie Se-seven-en.
How are you supposed to pronounce this? queightk? qwa-eight-kuh? Are you supposed to forget there's a "t" in 8?
It's 2012 (or was 2011 at the time). Who in the world is driving around without a seatbelt on?
