I just made one up myself: An Apple II, no colors for PAL countries. And absolutely no possibility for colors in France.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.

Hey we can make up our own?? Now this thread is interesting!

Intel: "The 486SX chip is just as fast but you should buy a DX, because it costs more"

Life? Don't talk to me about life.

Apple Macintosh - “The Power to be your best”.

This slogan is so true.
There is something about using an Apple product that gives you confidence that you have chosen the best tool for the job.
Its like a Mechanic or Construction worker or doctor choosing there tools for their occupation..

You just know you have chosen a good reliable tool when you chose an Apple.
Its like having a BIG tools box with a bunch of tiny computers in it.
And you go for the Apple. Its like using a Snap-on tool.
They are expensive but you know you have a very good tool and it gives you confidence.

those sort of slogans never make sense and irritate me with their "join our exclusive club of hip in the know people of now, not like those other losers!", implying that non lenovo's are for those who don't while manipulating humans natural desire to 'belong'

it's like saying "ford - for those that drive", well so is a pontiac but hey!

I think they just wanted to say that it's not a $2000 Facebook machine.

Foxconn: This is the most worthless 11 page thread in existence.

BenQ: I know right? More than half of these "slogans" aren't significant in any way. Like: 'IBM Portables - pick yours today!' is what a dude selling his old laptops at a garage sale might say.

Stewart Cheifet: Speaking of laptops, did you guys see that new 7 screen Aurora laptop? https://www.tomshardware.com/news/expanscape-aurora
Now that's my pick of the week!

Nvidia: Um... er... RTX On?

Everyone: Shaddup!

This will be oldhat for many of you, but the reminder won't hurt. TI-randomly-L...

...that spispopd stands for 'smashing pumpkins into small piles of putrid debris', that being a descriptive reference to the fragging of cacodemons (aka horny red beholders from Mars).

And that, as a delightful hat-tip, the band The Smashing Pumpkins subsequently used a Doom audio sample in one of the songs on their 1995 album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

I find this a fantastic tidbit to hear decades later (the internet either didn't or barely existed back then for most of us - so, such trivia was not-at-all widespread), because both Doom and The Smashing Pumpkins were integral parts of my nostalgic sunshine years during the early+mid 90's.
