again, to sum it up. an ipad is not a computer. does that compute with you? w/e tablet, or pda, or smartphone isn't a mobile computer, ipad, nokia n900, samsung galaxy or Babbage's mechanical calculator. unless it can play crysis then we can start an argument about it.
Would you really argue with a computer engineer about what is or what is not a computer? That is what you are doing bro.

A computer does not need to have a keyboard or mouse input or desktop manager like Windows or OSX. The most powerful supercomputers in the world cannot even play Crysis.

Please stop embarrassing yourself with your display of ignorance.

hmm...

Is the i-pad a computer? maybe, maybe not. but i think it's not appropriate to bundle i-pad & laptops in the same category. because personally i feel like the i-pad shares more in common with smart phones than laptops.

Apple fits this description perfectly.

"Fascists believe that a nation is an organic(apple) community that requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence(law suites) and wage war in order to keep the (company)nation strong."

i dont blame them macbook pro 13 has up to 10 hours battery life, macbook air with 5-7 hours and up to 10 hours battery life on the normal plastic macbook that is more than most other laptops at the same specs that and OS X is the best OS in the world (IMO) and i think that the apple laptops are the best looking laptops in the world (IMO)
