"Kirkpatrick, however, doesn't see what the fuss is all about.
Kirkpatrick writes, "Microsoft and AMD sent out a pile of very
expensive (yet trashy looking) laptops to a number of bloggers over
the past week. We were told we could keep them - now after a day of
minor outrage by some people they are emailing us back with the
following request that we not keep them after all! ... Ok, so
obviously I'm being a bit snotty here and am in a position of
ridiculous privilege to get one of these things for free. I just
don't think it's anything to get your knickers in a twist about
given the state of the world.""
