    I reported this whole thread. Constantly posting with the only intent to bash a product is indeed trolling.

    What's your post about HP Slate about? I sensed a whole post just to bash the HP Slate. I mean... the title is even "Why the HP Slate will fail"

    It's only tolling if you bash Apple. Bashing anything else is ok :rolleyes:

    Ok, so saying it will fail because of its hardware is bashing and trolling? So you are admitting then that you and all your buddies have been bashing and trolling the iPad then eh? Cool, my plan worked perfectly troll. Thanks

    Your "plan"? lol You don't make plans. IOWA posted up an actual source of a problem that is happening with Macbook Pros and he's the one trolling? Even though you made several mistakes, that you refuse to owe, and still continue to say negative things about the HP Slate? We're all trolls in one way or another. You're just an excellent one.

    Apple know that most men don't know that Wi-Fi can make you infertile and are therefore doing humanity a favour by making laptops unable to be put on laps - how kind of them :p
