<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">I was having this conversion with a "genius" friend of mine.<br><br>
Me: Check out my new big screen TV!<br>
Her: Mine is bigger<br>
Me: Well, if mine was any bigger, I wouldn't be able to see the whole screen. My living room is pretty small.<br>
Her: Mine is bigger<br>
Me: Mine is better<br>
Her: Mine is bigger<br>
Me: Does your TV display at 1080p in a uncompressed signal?<br>
Her:*blank stare*<br>
Her: Mine is bigger</td>

The brand on the laptop computer in this acnicdote (sp?) is "Bounce". Yes, thats right, "Bounce". That should give you some idea of the specs of the computer, and the kind of person who would buy such a computer. Anyway, it had a 1.3 GHz VIA CPU in it (it was new, too...), and he had dial-up. Worse, he was using AOL. "We" were trying to get his AOL account setup, when we had the folowing conversation:<br><br>
Him: "Why is this takeing so long? (refering to the long time it was taking to load the AOL page) Is it because it doesnt have a Pentium in it?"<br>
Me: *considers explaining internet speeds vs. CPU speeds, and how "Pentium" doesnt necesarily mean a computer is fast* "Yes"
