If I were to win the lottery…

Written By: Gary on November 10, 2005 6 Comments

So if I managed to hit the lottery and get a few hundred million I’m thinking I’d want to share it with my readers. To prove you’re a reader I’d have to have some kind of requirement like you’ve posted a comment in the last six months or something like that; that’s beside the point but it might be a reason to start commenting. I only get a few hundred commenters every six months so what’s a few thousand bucks per commenter if I just got a couple hundred million?

So here’s the sharing part: Assuming I offer you your dream laptop what would you pick (it must exist, you can’t make up a non-existant machine) and why? I don’t need model numbers, I’m just wondering what features you’ve want/need and what you’d use it for. In good faith, this would need to be a laptop for you to keep and use, not sell.


Of course, this would also include a year of paid subscription to one of the wireless networks like T-mobile (Border’s and such), WayPort (McDonalds and Aiports) or some service I’m not aware of (you did put WiFi in your dream machine didn’t you?). Which service would you want/use the most?

    Oh great… I just ordered my dream laptop and here you were going to BUY me one! D’oh!!

    I suppose I could just ask for a 12″ PowerBook for those times I don’t need a full 15″ screen and want to travel light. Just max out the options for one of those at the Apple Store, and you’re all set!

    I pay 20 million dollars to go to space to quell some of my growing curiosity.

    What if I don’t need a laptop, could I get something else..? :)

    I’ll take a duplicate of the ‘puter that Dave ordered for himself (his original order). If it’s delay is enough to make him create a cartoon of himself in a diaper whining puddles, then it must be a well-stocked ‘puter. I’d like a 12″, but Apple isn’t making them anymore.

    Interesting way to get comments. Me likey.

    I could use a new laptop, I think my old one is slowly breaking down… :(

    I’m not too picky – my old laptop doesn’t even have USB 2.0…

    Whatever cool Apple powerbook is available at the time. Why? Cause I love my Apple powerbook. I love Apple.
