The favoritism is all from the media - notice how quickly attention was diverted from the DNC fixing the nomination process? If this had been the republicans, they'd be all over the nomination fixing like flies on shit.

Subverting the election process is a lot more damaging long-term than a one-time hack by someone in Russia who may or may not be from the government.

Anyone doing serious work on a laptop over an extended period of time isn't going to give a shit about the screen - they'll be using an external screen, monitor, and mouse. So all that extra money is wasted.

The internal components come from the same manufacturer as the consumer line. So really, what are you paying for?

The rules are easily found on the internet. Everything from how to draft and serve a lawsuit to pretty much everything else. And there's no better feeling than sandbagging the other side because they've assumed you're an idiot because you choose to defend yourself.

Trolling slashdot is good preparation for anyone who wants to argue a case in court. You need to WANT to make the other side look as stupid as possible. That should motivate you to do your research.

We have this tool that lets ordinary people do their own research. You may have heard of it. It's called the Internet. You can also avoid paying $20,000 or more for a lawyer by taking that same $20,000 to pay yourself to sit in court for a couple hundred hours and learn how it really works in practice, instead of TV shows. That's $100/hour tax-free.

You'll also get to see people successfully prosecuting their own claims, and defending against others' claims. It's not as hard as it looks if you're reasonably intelligent.
