How much my old Asus laptop sucks
I wrote my brother an email about how much my old Asus laptop sucked and how much better my new laptop is…
This new Lenovo that I took forever configuring and deciding on is a million billion times better than my old laptop and everyone elses’ in the world combined, including those people with Lenovos…
Now, just to elucidate how preposterous this statement was, I decided to work out the math.¬†¬† Yay word problems!
Let A = Asus and L = Lenovo, and 500,000 to be the number of units Lenovo has sold.¬† Then equations (Eq 1) (Eq 2) apply.
(Eq 3) is how much my old laptop sucks.¬† It is negatively valued, primarily dominated by the number of units that Lenovo has sold.
Putting it a different way¬† (Eq 4), one single unit of my old Asus can neutralize almost the entire volume of Lenovo sales, not including my own laptop.¬† Because it’s that awesome.
And that’s how ridiculous what I wrote was.
My old Asus is a black hole that is so bad that its effect upon the world can only be filled by all of Lenovo sales.¬† Only my laptop can sit outside the event horizon.¬† But then, that’s the thing about math, even if I give my laptop a different variable, and an expression to relate it to other Lenovos, some C number of Lenovo owners will decide to throw my super awesome laptop into the Asus black hole to spare their work machines.¬† That means that I’ll have to be X times stronger than C Lenovo owners plus R additional “communist/socially-minded” Lenovo owners who believe the needs of the slightly more outweigh the needs of the few, or the one. (Spock, Kirk 
- I am.¬† (Eq 5)
- Lenovo owners are business people and so R is likely to diminish to zero.
