I’d love to get in one of those shoddy new Microsoft Commercials so I could whore myself out by using their money to buy a Windows notebook from somewhere with a nice return policy (you may see where I am going with this). After I get my money and craptop, I go back to the store and return it for cash, swiftly going to GameStop and purchasing an Xbox 360. After some calculations, if I got the same bull-crap $1,500 Vaio that Lisa and Jackson got, I could buy…

  • A used Xbox 360 Pro 60GB (~$200)
  • 3 Wireless controllers ($111 on Amazon)
  • The Orange Box ($20)
  • Left 4 Dead ($55-$40)
  • Fallout 3 ($60-$50)
  • Call of Duty 4 and/or 5 ($50 or $110)
  • Gears of War 2 ($60-$50)
  • Halo 3 ($60-$50)
  • Fable 2 ($50-$40)
  • Bioshock ($24)
  • Oblivion ($28)
  • 13 Months of Xbox Live Gold ($50)
  • Cooling System ($30)
  • A dinner at Texas de Brazil ($50)
  • A new crash cymbal ($350-250)
  • $50 of iTunes credit
  • Logitech diNovo Keyboard ($88)
  • 16 GB Flash drive ($33)
  • A Quizno’s Sandwich ($5)
  • Tax ($125.71)

So at $1,484.71, (taking the mean for price ranges), I end up with quite a haul and about $15 left over instead of a crummy Sony laptop. I could even release a taunting YouTube video after my commercial had aired¬†declaring both¬†my dominance over the stuffed shirts at Microsoft and my affinity for Macs. Now that’s what I call a bargain.
