    So I created this software...

    Ah how I missed this site :D If I could get 30% monthly returns, the only thing you would see changing is my IP address from Canada to somewhere out in the tropics and a display picture of my gold plated yacht. This message would have also been typed by my gold plated parrot assistant ;)

    The Worlds First Ultraportable 15.6" Laptop!!??

    I bought the XPS 15 LX-502 for my back-to-school top. I'm hoping it will last me the 2 years I have left and hopefully into grad school :D The outer shell looks pretty plain and boring but the inside is sweet and delicious.

    COMPARE University of Toronto MMF vs MFE

    God's laptop

    $5K is silly. Maybe its just me but I don't care if my laptop weighs 2.5 lbs or 6.5 lbs. It's definitely not worth the apparent pile of money. I just bought a Dell XPS 15 lappy, with the quadcore i7 2720QM, same 8 gigs'o'ram, Nvidia 540m 2GB graphics, 750 GB 7200RPM HDD, cost me $1500, sure I...
