Unlike a lot of people, I actually have 40k, but I would never give it to him. I listened to the MP3, and it's just awful.
I recently watched some Channel9 live from Build and noticed that most of the people use Sony Vaios. It motivated me to sell mine(The one I took to Belgium) and buy a Macbook Pro, which I did today.
To say buying a Macbook is a far better investment than this guy. I had a gut reaction that if the C9 guests are using Sony Vaios, there must be something horribly wrong with them.
Who's the idiot who gave you $40K?
