And where, exactly, do you get paid money to buy a Chromebook?

MacBook Air starts at $999 for the 11" version, so in order to save 1200 bucks, you'd have to be given $201 when getting the Chromebook.

Sounds like a really bad deal for the manufacturer to be honest.

Hi there, you must be very pedantic and love to point out how utterly moronic everybody else is compared to you.

Welcome to Slashdot!
You will fit in quite nicely here.

Many a gun proponent has been turned by having a spouse or child killed. The rest just don't believe it can ever happen to them.

Many gun opponents have been turned by having a spouse or child killed, while they watched, defenseless. The rest just don't believe it can ever happen to them.

The street - she runs both ways.

Yes, because as the gun lobby has always said, the only solution to guns is...moar guns!

Fucking retarded idiots.

And yet America still has the highest gun murder rates. These school shootings happen every year. Nothing changes.

You Americans have an unhealthy obsession with guns and shooting people to death, which i believe is the actual root of the problem.
Look to the rest of the world. We dont have the obscenely high gun murder rates you do, yet many countries have higher gun ownership rates than you, but stricter ownership laws and an order of magnitude less gun murder rates.

Im sorry Americans, but the whole cat is already out of the bag argument doesnt fly anymore.

Your laws and attitudes need to change before you can get a grip on your gun problems. What exactly will it take before you take things seriously and start applying common sense? 100 deaths in one spree? 10 sprees a month? How bad does it have to get before you pull your heads out of the sand and actually sort this shit out?

White object radiate less enery but also absorb less. Black objects radiate more energy, but also absorb more.

No, for a given surface temperature, they radiate the same.

Then why does a hot black object, at the same temperate as a hot white object, cool down significantly faster if they are both radiating the same amount of energy?

Did you realise you are reading Slashdot?

Your interjections of common-sense based reasoning and mildly optimistic outlook are not wanted here.

Paranoia exists here because *they* really are out to get us. The world really is only a finger width away from total annihilation and the zombie apocalypse is not only plausible, but inevitable and about to happen at any minute.

As every single reader of Slashdot is an American, we all have our fully automatic firearms ready and loaded ( and concealed ) , waiting for the signal to start a shootin' at the government. Yeehaw.
